Robotic Arms That “Print” Bridges, Also Can Be with Bikes: Arc Bicycle

A team of students at the TU Delft University in the Netherlands, has designed and created a bike that can be printed, and is fully functional. A centre which seems that it is very much in form when developing projects with new technologies, from the same city came out things like WEpod or the drone ambulance.

The material used for the creation of the picture of the bike, which is what can be printed, is stainless steel. This bike, named as ARC Bicycle, It is a good example of the power that is in the new metallic materials with 3D printing systems.

What better test for technology than a useful item like a bicycle, and roll by the Dutch paving stones

3D printers have gained much popularity in the last decade, but when it’s used metal, or there is intention to create something relatively large, things get complicated. We had already found us a couple of projects that also tried it with bikes, in which used titanium.

The students wanted to choose a practical element, used daily in Dutch society: a bike box seems the best example to show its capabilities, and then show how it works in real life. If we know in video creation process, as well as its functioning:

To create a vehicle that go to the forefront of technology, it would be missing that it was motorized by a power system, and is not the case. The same you can find ways to transform it, once printed.

MX3D puts the technology

The bike has been created with the help of MX3D, a company based in Amsterdam, specializing in 3D printing with welding systems and robotic arms. As you have seen in the video, it is possible to create relatively large elements without the need for elements that are supporting the figure.

Do you remember the bridge was going to be printed with robotic arms? These guys from MX3D are who were also behind the work. Other companies involved in this work are Autodesk and Arcelor Mittal:
