Case study - 3D-printed bridge

The world’s first 3D printed stainless steel bridge has been installed in the Netherlands.

Amsterdam based startup MX3D has 3D printed a fully functional stainless steel bridge to cross one of the oldest and most famous canals in the center of Amsterdam, the Oudezijds Achterburgwal.

The designers took advantage of additive manufacturing which enables almost any design to be rapidly built with little scrap and options for either on-site or factory fabrication.
