3D printing takes to the stage

Posted on Sep 12 2018 - 8:30am by Editorial Content

Italian print provider Colorzenith recently 3D printed a life-size replica of a Lancia B24 car for a month-long run of Don Pasquale at La Scala in Milan. Set designers Davide Livermore and GIKFORMA required it for a scene in which soprano Rosa Feola descends from the ceiling while sitting behind the wheel. Given that the car had to be lightweight but strong and delivered in a very short timeframe, 3D printing was the only option. Colorzenith produced the car on a Massivit 1800 3D Printer in four parts in under four days. Once printed, it was sanded, strengthened with an internal metal frame and decorated with glued-on headlights, mudguards and door handles.
