3D Printed Concrete Bridge in the Netherlands Officially Open to Cyclists

3D Printed Concrete Bridge in the Netherlands Officially Open to Cyclists

In 2015, the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the Netherlands began developing a giant concrete 3D printer as part of a large-scale research project. The massive 3D printer, which includes a concrete mixing pump and is constructed of a four-axis gantry robot with a print bed of approximately 9.0×4.5×3 m3, was introduced last summer at a public […]

Chinese Bridge Sports New, Extra-Strength 3D Printed Railings

Chinese Bridge Sports New, Extra-Strength 3D Printed Railings

In the Chinese city of Nanjing, a well-traveled bridge was deemed unsafe – namely, its railings weren’t stable enough. According to Li Jin, Chairman of Nanjing Jiayi Precision Machinery Manufacturing Co., Ltd, replacing the railings using traditional means would have taken at least a month. If you’ve had to deal with bridge construction on any of […]

World's First Robotic 3D Printed Modified Plastic Footbridges on Display at Tongji University

World's First Robotic 3D Printed Modified Plastic Footbridges on Display at Tongji University

When we talk about 3D printed bridges, they’re usually made out of heavy construction materials, like concrete or steel. But recently, Tongji University’s College of Architecture and Urban Planning (CAUP) unveiled the first robotic 3D printed bridges, which were made using modified plastic. The two black footbridges, which span 4 meters and 11 meters, graced the […]

TU/e and BAM Infra Get to Work on 3D Printed Concrete Bicycle Bridge

TU/e and BAM Infra Get to Work on 3D Printed Concrete Bicycle Bridge

About a year ago, the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) introduced a gigantic 3D printer capable of 3D printing concrete. Now, the university has used that 3D printer to begin printing a new concrete pedestrian and bike bridge in collaboration with Netherlands company BAM Infra. TU/e is calling the bridge the world’s first to be 3D printed […]

3D Printed Concrete Pedestrian Bridge Built in Madrid, City Representatives Call It a 3D Printing Milestone

3D Printed Concrete Pedestrian Bridge Built in Madrid, City Representatives Call It a 3D Printing Milestone

3D printing is great for creating small things, like handheld figurines, but it’s also helping to develop and create really large objects as well, such as cars, and even houses built out of concrete. Concrete may not be the first material that comes to mind when you think about 3D printing, but it’s becoming widespread; it’s even […]

3D Printed Steel Pedestrian Bridge Will Soon Span an Amsterdam Canal

3D Printed Steel Pedestrian Bridge Will Soon Span an Amsterdam Canal

The oldest of Amsterdam’s approximately 1,280 bridges in use dates back to 1648. The city is famous for its beautiful canals and waterways, and Dutch engineers have long made their names in constructing ways around the “Venice of the North.” Tourists are encouraged to visit one particular bridge on the Herengracht canal, from which they can see 15 […]
