Welkom in Rotterdam
The Erasmusbrug is a combined cable-stayed and bascule bridge in the centre of Rotterdam, connecting the north and south parts of this city, second largest in the Netherlands.
The 802-metre-long (2,631 ft) bridge across the New Meuse river was designed by Ben van Berkel and completed in 1996. The cable-stayed bridge section has a single 139-metre-high (456 ft) asymmetrical pale blue pylon with a prominent horizontal base, earning the bridge its nickname"The Swan".
The southernmost span of the bridge has an 89-metre-long (292 ft) bascule bridge for ships that cannot pass under the bridge. The bascule bridge is the largest and heaviest in Western Europe and has the largest panel of its type in the world (from Wikipedia).
This model was originally designed to be printed in Builder 3D Printers' Builder Extreme 1500 PRO, which is a HUGE printer! Each part can be printed without supports and then assembled. We have test-printed it on a regular, household size 3D printer and it works great too!
MiniWorld 3D is excited to bring this charming model to life as a homage to all the people of Rotterdam! Please give credit, it's all about spreading culture and education!
