Engineering students at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands have teamed up with the Amsterdam-based 3D-printing company MX3D to 3D print a stainless steel bike frame. The Arc Bicycle, as it is called, weighs of as much as a regular steel-framed bike and is strong adequate to ride on the cobblestone streets of Amsterdam.

MX3D turn it intod a 3D printing device in 2013 that uses a robotic arm to turn it into objects by depositing resin on both horizontal and vertical surfaces, unlike many 3D printing devices that can just turn it into up objects on a horizontal surface, layer by layer. Recently, MX3D utilized that same version to turn it into a 3D printing device than can craft metal objects in midair and expand in any way without supports. By depositing blobs of molten metal and and so waiting for them to harden preceding adding another blob, the 3D printing device can turn it into sizeable, intricate structures.
