Everyone knows that 3D printing is the wave of the future, but most of us associate the entire process with tiny pieces printed in plastic. In collaboration with the MX3D engineers in Amsterdam, a student team from TU Delft designed and printed this fully functional Arc Bicycle from stainless steel. The three-month project was ultimately realized using WAAM (Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing), a 3D printing technique based on MIG welding that allows for multi axis printing, and articulated robot arms that are mesmerizing to watch. The bike isn’t available for purchase (yet!), but it truly demonstrates how far the technology has come and where it’s going.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
