World first 3D printed steel bridge opens in Amsterdam


Recently, Amsterdam (Netherlands) has unveiled the world's first 3D-printed steel pedestrian bridge. The project is on the Oudezijds Achterbergwal canal in the city of Amsterdam. The opening ceremony of which was attended by Queen Maxima of the Netherlands.


This bridge has been built by Amsterdam based 3D metal printing company MX3D. The world's first 3D printed bridge has been installed in Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands. 4500 kg of stainless steel has been used to make it. Its length is 12 meters.


From the design to the construction of this bridge, the entire work has been done by the robot. Which has been installed on the oldest canal of Amsterdam. The Netherlands-based company MX3D, which designed the bridge, says that it was inaugurated on 15 July and has been opened to the general public from 18 July.


There are more than a dozen sensors in the bridge. With their help, all the information related to the strength of the bridge has been received, only after that, it has been opened to the common people. Mark Girolami of Cambridge University, who worked on the digital model of the bridge, says that in future such a bridge can be issued an alert before it is damaged.


3D-printing is a manufacturing technique with the help of which 3-dimensional objects are created. These things are made with a 3D printer. A simple printer requires ink and paper, but with the help of a 3D printer, you can also decide the size, colour and design of whatever you create. Once everything is decided, the data is fed into the machine and the robots do the work of preparing the things.
