Would YOU walk over it? World\'s first 3D printed bridge is unveiled in Madrid - and experts say the technology could be the future of construction

From artificial limbs to Michelin-
Star meal, 3D printing has been used to create a series of strange and wonderful objects.
The latest building built using this technology takes things to a whole new level.
Researchers created the first 3D in the world.
The bridge may be a future building, they said.
In a park in Madrid, this extraordinary building is 12 metres long and 1. 75 metres wide.
It was printed on micro -.
Exquisite concrete
College of senior architecture, Catalunya (IAAC)
Responsible for the architectural design of the bridge.
Areti markopooulou, the MS who led the team, told the Daily Mail: \"In traditional buildings, there is a lot of waste that you can\'t remove, but, using 3D printing, you can control the deposition position of the material.
\"Usually we are limited in structure to simple geometry because it is difficult and expensive to make complex molds.
\"With this bridge, we were able to experiment with the complex forms that appeared in nature, and we designed a design that would be very difficult with traditional methods.
Researchers have been experimenting with 3D printing structures for 15 years.
MS markopooulou said: \"This is a very important development in terms of architectural innovation and experiments.
They hope the bridge will open up more opportunities to use 3D printing in civil engineering.
Prefabrication can minimize costs, faster and more sustainable, says markopooulou MS.
The bridge was completed in Castile city park in December 14.
La Mancha, arcobendas, Madrid.
During construction, waste is reduced by recycling raw materials during manufacturing.
The bridge consists of eight different parts, each of which is made up of Concrete Powder Micro
Reinforced with thermoplastic polypropylene.
MS markopooulou said: \"This is an evolutionary technique that involves depositing a layer of material on a piece of paper.
Instead of using ink like a normal printer, we store building materials.
\"Bridges are often used to practice architectural principles, so it is an important exercise for experiments.
The IAAC works with architects, mechanical and structural engineers and municipal delegates to bring the design to life.
The building depends on a huge 3D printer.
The first of its kind
It can combine sand with solid rock.
A representative of IAAC said that the computational design also allows for maximum structural performance, the ability to dispose of materials only where needed, and complete freedom.
The representative said that because of the application of the generation algorithm and the challenge to traditional building technology, the structure maintained a gap.
