Found a little bit of time to continue experimenting, this one a CAD script to generate footbridges with arbitrarily complex geometries. Still playing with the settings and supports, so this example is in raw form just as it came off the printer...

That's seriously impressive, Martin!

Here's my first and only attempt at a printed footbridge from back in 2013:
