World's first 3D-printed steel bridge opened in Amsterdam_50.1

The world’s first 3D-printed steel bridge was opened to the public in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It was developed by MX3D, a Dutch robotics company, in collaboration with a consortium of experts, and represents a major milestone for 3D-printing technology. After four years of development, the bridge was unveiled by Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands. It was installed over one of the oldest canals in Amsterdam’s city centre – the Oudezijds Achterburgwal.

About the bridge:

  • The 12-metre-long steel structure will be a ‘living laboratory’ that will capture and transmit data on its health in real-time to show how it changes over its lifespan.
  • The length of the bridge is nearly 40 feet. It is a 6-ton stainless steel structure. 
  • The smart sensor network was designed and installed by a team from The Alan Turing Institute.
  • The sensors attached to the structure will gather data on air quality, temperature, strain, displacement and vibration.
  • The data will be used by the bridge’s ‘digital twin’, a computer model that will emulate the actual bridge in real-time, to improve accuracy over time.
  • The computer model will help understand how a full-scale 3D-printed steel structure works in the real world.

Important takeaways for all competitive exams:

  • Netherlands Capital: Amsterdam; Currency: Euro.
