Robots complete span of 3D-printed bridge for Amsterdam canal #3DPrinting #Robotics

Via DeZeen:

Robots have finished 3D printing the structure of a steel pedestrian bridge devised by technology startup MX3D, which is set to span a canal in Amsterdam.

Dutch designer Joris Laarman is working with with Amsterdam-based robotic manufacturing technology start-up to build the 12-metre-long bridge, which will eventually cross a canal in the Dutch capital.

Six-axis robots were used to “draw” the 4-metre-wide structure in the air from layers of molten steel.

Engineering firm Arup and researchers from Imperial College London are due to perform several full load tests to prove the structural integrity of the bridge, which is being printed inside a former shipbuilding hangar.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
