It has opened the world's first 3D printed steel bridge in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Not only is this a fantastic structural achievement in itself, but it will function as a living laboratory for studying data and creating more complex architectural works.

The steel 3D printed bridge bears the signature of Imperial College London. Run by the Dutch company MX3D, it measures 12 meters long, weighs 4,500 kilos and behind its construction there are 4 industrial robots and 6 months of printing, although it has comprised more than 4 years of hard work by researchers. The robots used welding torches to deposit each printed layer of the bridge.

In addition to having a "futuristic design", the pedestrian crossing was equipped with sensors to measure in real-time traffic flows, air quality and the safety conditions of the structure.

Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, together with a robot, inaugurated the world's first 3D-printed steel bridge, which was installed over a canal in the old part of Amsterdam, the Dutch Royal House reported in a statement.

"With this project we have established a new standard for 3D printing with steel and we have developed this technique. We have shown that it is possible to print large surfaces on metal. With this new technology we can produce metallic structures, without wasting material, flexible in shape and style. "said Gijs van der Velden, CEO of MX3D, the company in charge of printing the work.
