Vertico, a Netherlands-based 3D concrete printing specialist, has collaborated with the University of Ghent to 3D print an optimized and material efficient footbridge. The firm minimized the materials used in the construction of the bridge by 60 percent through its concrete 3D printing process. 

Despite using less material, 3D printing helped to create optimized structures still able to withstand the same stresses as a traditionally manufactured bridge. By constructing the bridge, Vertico aims to highlight the advantages 3D concrete printing has to offer for the building industry…”
