Joris Aarman's Metal 3D Printing Robot

Juxtapoz // Monday, February 24, 2014
Dutch designer Joris Laarman, who previously developed a 3D-printing technique that uses quick-drying resin to draw sculptures in mid-air, has recently created a robot that can print with metals including stainless steel, aluminum, bronze or copper. Using a robot typically used in car manufacturing, the method ads small amounts of molten metal at a time, allowing for lines to be printed in mid air. The lines can also be printed to intersect with each other, creating self-supporting structures.
