Dutch Startup Plans First 3D Printed Steel Bridge Over Amsterdam Canal

A Dutch startup has unveiled plans to build the world’s first 3D-printed bridge across an Amsterdam canal. It will be the first use of a technique that could become standard on future construction sites. Engineering startup company MX3D said in a statement that the company will use robotic printers “that can ‘draw’ steel structures in 3D to print a pedestrian bridge over water in the center of Amsterdam." The company hopes to kick off the project by September. Amsterdam is world-famous for its seemingly countless canals and bridges.
