Welcome to London!
MiniWorld collaborator Brian Sanchez shares this wonderful model of London's most famous bridge! It has been optimized for printing without supports, it can be assembled without glue, and it has an operational drawbridge that opens and closes!
The Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London built between 1886 and 1894. Sir John Wolfe Barry was appointed engineer with Sir Horace Jones as architect. It is built in Gothic style. The bridge crosses the River Thames close to the Tower of London and has become an iconic symbol of the city.
The bridge is 800 feet (240 m) in length with two towers each 213 feet (65 m) high, built on piers. The central span of 200 feet (61 m) between the towers is split into two equal bascules or leaves, which can be raised to an angle of 86 degrees to allow river traffic to pass (from Wikipedia).
MiniWorld is excited to bring this historical model to life! All models are made by hand and brain from scratch in SolidWorks or Fusion360 to ensure printability, please give credit, it's all about spreading culture and education!
