Using A Hydraulic Press To Test The Strength Of A Variety Of Different 3-D Printed Bridge Designs

April 16, 2020

This is a video from the Hydraulic Press Channel of eight different bride designs submitted by viewers and 3-D printed by the channel (all using PLA plastic with 0.15mm layer height)
to see which holds up the best under a 40-ton press. That's fun. I remember in high school physics class we had a competition to see who could build the sturdiest bridge out of popsicle sticks, unfortunately *casually playing with Zippo* none of the bridges survived to competition day. "Huh, so you've always been into burning bridges." Hoho -- my girlfriend, ladies and gentlemen! She's super judgy.

Keep going for the video and place your bets.

Thanks to hairless, who agrees I should have had the foresight to buy a hydraulic press before this whole quarantine thing.
