The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate strait, the mile-wide, three-mile-long channel between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean.
It opened in 1937 and was, until 1964, the longest suspension bridge main span in the world, at 4,200 feet (1,300 m)

More about 3D printing:
A breakthrough of 3D printing is that it enables one to design objects that would be unreasonable to manufacture with any other process. The designer's vision here is to take full advantage of this design freedom to create fun and exciting new products.
The designers use a 3D printing process called Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), and design their products using advanced 3D modeling software which is then sent to the 3D printer. The printer begins with a bed of powdered material; lasers then sinter the material into the shape of the design, layer by layer.
