The world's first 3D printed bicycle bridge opened in Gemert, Noord-Brabant on Tuesday. It was built by the Eindhoven University of Technology and BAM Infra, NOS reports. "The bridge is not very big, but it all came out of a printer. That makes it unique", Theo Salet of TU Eindhoven said to the broadcaster.
The Technical University in Eindhoven, working with construction company BAM, started 3D printing a bicycle bridge this weekend. The bridge is the first of its kind in the world and is printed with pre-stressed and reinforced concrete, according to NOS.
Last month the Technical University Eindhoven started running test with a massive 3D concrete printer. The university will be working with the construction industry to develop and print concrete products, such as complete walls printed with all the necessary features from the start.
