Students in China uses two robot fabrication methods to make a bridge.

Students of Tongji University in Shanghai, China have used two emerging robot fabrication techniques to build a bridge. Carbon fibres entwined on a 3D printed metal frame is what makes the hybrid bridge as the students explore two new construction methods of- large scale metal 3D printing and filament winding. Both techniques being economic and energy efficient than compared to traditional building methods, the hybrid bridge is an outcome of students participating in DigitalFUTURES International 2019 summer workshop at Tongji University along with local research studio Fab- Union.
