Developing a autonomous 3D printer printing large, fast and cheap in metal.


Workplace: Neveritaweg 15, 1033WB, Amsterdam (NDSM). Bridge: Stoofsteeg (Oudezijdsachterburgwal)

MX3D Bridge Project, Amsterdam

Joris Laarman Lab developed a new technique to 3D print its art objects big, fast and economical. We created software that enables us to 3D print with a simple robot and welding machine. This worked so well that the Lab decided to create a spin off company: MX3D BV. Located at the NDSM Ship wharf in Amsterdam, MX3D has found partners willing to support its latest project: 3D printing a bridge for Amsterdam. Partners are: Autodesk, Heijmans, ArcelorMittal, Gemeente Amsterdam, AMS, TU Delft ABB, Lenovo, Airliquide etc.

Aspects of the project

We generate healthy revenue with the creation of art objects. The second aspect of our business is realizing the bridge. In the meantime we do R&D to develop our 3D printer to a level third parties can make good use of them.

Achievements and next steps

We created big art pieces and managed to assemble parties to built a bridge. We will introduce a 3D printer on the market by 2017.
