    The Netherlands opened the world’s first 3D printed concrete bridge in 2017. Now, the nation has its eyes set on another landmark achievement using additive manufacturing. Construction has now started on what will be the world’s longest 3D printed bridge.

    The current longest 3D printed bridge in the world opened in 2019 in Shanghai, China, and stands at 86 feet long. This new project in Nijmegen, Netherlands, will be more than 95 feet long once completed. In addition to breaking records, this bridge represents a shift in both 3D printing and construction.

    Pushing Boundaries

    This project, appropriately named “The Bridge Project,” is part of a broader movement in the Netherlands, with Nijmegen called the Green Capital of Europe in 2018. The nation has a reputation for being one of the most eco-friendly in the world, and 3D printing in construction plays into that. The Netherlands is home to the first 3D printed concrete bridge, the first 3D printed steel bridge, and will soon be home to the longest.

    The project is being co-commissioned by the Dutch public works department, Rijkswaterstaat, and will be printed in Eindhoven at the BAM and Weber Beamix 3D printing facility. The design itself was
