Die Möglichkeiten, provides 3D printing, seem limitless. Ein Team Studenten der TU Delft hat jetzt ein voll funktionsfähiges Fahrrad aus dem 3D-Drucker geholt. The special thing about it is, the frame of the Bikes is made of stainless steel. Thus, the team wanted to prove, dass sich auch dieses Material für den Einsatz im 3D-Drucker eignet. 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. Dafür hat das Unternehmen Roboterarme entwickelt, that function as printer. So können sie einfach mitten im Raum drucken und brauchen keine weiteren Geräte.

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.
