3D Print Lightweight Load Bearing Structures

In most large constructions, rigid, dense and heavy support beams are used to keep a structure from crumbling in on itself.  But for some applications, having dense structural components is a drawback. Researchers in Europe have shown that the density of structural components can be greatly reduced if they’re constructed around a fractal pattern.
