The possibilities, provides 3D printing, seem limitless. A team students of TU Delft has now brought a fully functional bicycle from the 3D printer. The special thing about it is, the frame of the Bikes is made of stainless steel. Thus, the team wanted to prove, that this material is suitable for use in the 3D printer. As a Making-Of-Video shows, breaking the bike in no way under the weight of people together. On the contrary, it does not even have problems with cobblestones in downtown. Here, the bike weighs less than 20 Kilogram. Technical assistance received by the students MX3D, a startup based in Amsterdam, specializing in multi-axis 3D printing. Therefore, the company has developed robotic arms, that function as printer. So they can just middle of the room Print and need no other equipment.

3D printing has exploded in popularity in the last decade but for those wanting to print medium to large scale objects, there are still significant limitations in the technology, ” explains team member Harry Anderson – industrial design student at RMIT university, Melbourne. “This method of 3d printing makes it possible to produce medium to large scale Metal objects with almost total form freedom.
