A Seven Summits expedition to Carstenz Pyramid in New Guinea, in January of 2018. Carstensz Pyramid or Puncak Jaya lies in the remote Sudirman ranges of Irian Jaya (West Papua). We flew in by helicopter to do this incredible high altitude rock climb.
In a collaboration between MX3D and TU Delft a Load Bearing Arm was created using a newly created mobile Multi Axial WAAM Robot. The project aimed to see how objects larger than the reach of the robot itself could be made. Due to the complexity of geometry, the design required the robot to be mobile in order to reach different printing locations. The design was optimised for a 150kg load, however, the prototype suggests a far greater strength.
