The innovation was created layer by layer with two robotic arms, taking a total of 450 hours.. On the other hand, the materials were composed of polyethylene fiber and various additives with a resistance of 65 mpa (megapascal).
The bridge consists of 44 pieces of printed cement with dimensions of 0.91 x 0.91 x 1.52 meters each, taking into account that said construction cost two thirds of what the budget of a standard work would have been.
