The almost 40-foot 3D-printed pedestrian bridge designed by Joris Laarman and built by Dutch robotics company MX3D has been opened in Amsterdam six years after the project was launched. The bridge, which was fabricated from stainless steel rods by six-axis robotic arms equipped with welding gear, spans the Oudezijds Achterburgwal in Amsterdam’s Red Light District.

3D Printing the Future!

Now that the bridge is unveiled, researchers at Imperial College London will begin collecting data in real-time to monitor how it behaves with foot and cyclist traffic.

«Research into this new technology for the construction industry has huge potential for the future,» said Imperial College London co-contributor Dr. Craig Buchanan. «It has been fascinating and we are delighted that the structure is now ready to be used.»
