Shanghai established a record-sized 3D printing bridge. Its parameters - 14 meters in length and 4 in width. The bridge parts are made of ASA plastic and glass fiber. The main load bearing can withstand reinforced steel arch.
The bridge designed and built the Tsinghua University Building Institute. His representatives assure that they borrowed the idea of appearance from the ancient Anji bridge from Hebei Province. The construction took place in the Gulf of Wisdom Park in Shanghai, with the guidance of which the designers collaborated.
It is known that visitors to the park have already managed to pass through the bridge, but for the time being it is closed for operation. Builders left only to finish redecorating.
The Shanghai Bridge is the third in the world, whose elements are printed on a 3D printer. The first one was built in 2016 in Spain, the second one a year later in the Netherlands.
