In the Spanish town of Alcobendas in the Park Castile-La Mancha has established the world's first 3D-printed a pedestrian bridge designed for public use. The construction length is 12 meters, its width is 1.75 meters.
Design attractions engaged the Institute for advanced architecture of Catalonia and the Spanish construction company Acciona, the team which was attended by Enrico Dini, the Creator of the 3D printer for printing large-scale objects. When you implement the ideas the city Treasury will save on construction. The fact that the bridge was created from cement powder reinforced thermoplastic polypropylene. An important role was played by the fact that in three-dimensional printing, the excess in the production are not emitted and used again. At the same time due to machine design engineers managed to preserve the natural structure of the material and not be limited to standard forms. Therefore, the same bridge constructed from conventional materials would cost several times more expensive.
