According to media reports, the world’s first 3D printed resin landscape bridge was unveiled in Shanghai. The bridge is about 15 meters long and is the longest 3D printing bridge in the world.
It is reported that the printing material for this 3D printing bridge is a factory in Changshu, Suzhou. This 3D printed landscape bridge is designed according to the standard of ordinary landscape bridge. It can bear 250 kilograms per square meter and has a service life of about 30 years.
3D printing is a kind of rapid prototyping technology, which is based on digital model files, using a bondable material such as powdered metal or plastic to construct an object by layer-by-layer printing.
3D printing is usually implemented by digital technology material printers. It is often used in mold manufacturing, industrial design, etc., and is used in the direct manufacturing of some products. There are already parts printed using this technology.
The technology is used in the jewelry, footwear, industrial design, construction, engineering and construction (AEC), automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education, geographic information systems, civil engineering and other fields.
