Company to 3D print a steel pedestrian bridge in mid-air


By 2017, Dutch designer Joris Laarman plans to use his company's MX3D metal printing technology to 3D print a 24-foot-long steel pedestrian bridge over an Amsterdam canal.

The system is based on a six-axis robot that squirts out metal and resin. Laarman expects the bridge to be completed over a two month period.
