Bridge over river Shanghai: Tongji University unveils China’s 1st 3D printed pedestrian bridges

Bridge over river shanghai tongji university unveils china 1st 3d printed pedestrian bridge 1

Via 3ders

The School of Architecture and Urban Planning at Shanghai’s Tongji University has unveiled China’s first 3D printed pedestrian bridges. The two bridges are made of plastic, and measure four meters and 11 meters, respectively.

Although most 3D printers aren’t especially compatible with rivers, 3D printed bridges have been making something of a splash in recent times. Following 3D printed overpasses in Spain and the Netherlands, China has now joined the ranks of countries with 3D printed bridges.

The School of Architecture and Urban Planning at Shanghai’s Tongji University can claim responsibility for these plastic 3D printed marvels, which were erected near the entrance to the School.

One bridge measures 11 meters from one side to the other, and stretches over a small stream and a bushy garden area; another, smaller bridge measures four meters across and covers the water only. The larger bridge has steps, while the smaller bridge is flat.
