This isn’t a prop from an upcoming science fiction movie, just the world’s first 3D-printed stainless steel bridge by Dutch company MX3D. What made it all possible? Well, it took the company four robots, almost 10,000-pounds of stainless steel, 684-miles of wire, and 6-months of printing. It was designed by Joris Laarman Lab, and measures approximately 41 feet by 20 feet, fabricated from a new kind of steel, as 3D-printing created a ribbed surface since robots added layers upon layers. The bridge will be installed over the Oudezijds Achterburgwal canal in Amsterdam some time in 2019. Click here for the first image in today’s viral picture gallery.
