The rounded and wavy shapes of the bicycle bridge vary. At the Saint Gobain Weber Bamix printing factory, it was printed layer by layer.
Because the span is not always constant, and it was required to account for the structure’s fluctuating weight, it was decided to divide the bridge into pieces that could be printed. Printed bridges may theoretically be produced considerably faster than traditional bridges, with greater flexibility and room for a unique design. They are also more durable since they require less concrete. The world’s first 3D-printed metal pedestrian bridge was unveiled earlier this year in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It took more than four years to complete the project.
The bridge is 12 meters in length. This is a temporary structure; the bridge will be replaced with a permanent one within two years. According to the creators, 3D printing technology will allow designers to create designs with less material in the future than they can now. Steel items created using a 3D printer will have an entirely different look and feel.
