While there are a thousand little things one can freely download from Thingiverse, the website for sharing of user-created digital design files to print on a 3D printer, a man from New Zealand decided to take a more ambitious route – build an Aston Martin car replica using a Solidoodle 3D printer.
IVan Sentch, an Auckland-based programmer is building an Aston Martin DB4 using his second-generation Solidoodle, piece by piece. The project started Christmas of 2012 and is now finished at around 72% of the body, which after completion will be used to create a fiberglass mold. Want to track Sentch’s progress?
