VOXELJET uses massive 3D printer to recreate classic Aston Martin for new BOND movie, Skyfall!

Did you know??

“Instead of risking damage to the priceless original, notably in a scene where the car explodes, the movie’s special-effects team sought the help of voxeljet, a European company that used a massive 3D printer to create three perfectly scaled replicas of the vehicle.” nydailynews

Okay, so as a 3D artist we should all be very excited.  3D printing alone for us is extremely exciting, because it makes our polygons suddenly tangible. But to use it in feature films like this, where every detail is exact down to the bullet holes is mind blowing.  This should be inspirational to all of us to take that leap into possibly unknown territory and explore some 3D printing!
