Colorzenith Creates 3D Life-Sized Car

Italy based print provider, Colorzenith, used a Massivit 1800 printer to create a 3D life-sized replica of the classic Italian car, Lancia B24, for the Don Pasquale opera – performed in Europe’s largest opera house, La Scala in Milan.

The set designers, Davide Livermore together with GIҠFORMA, required a lightweight car for an iconic scene where soprano, Rosa Feola, descends from the ceiling to the stage while sitting in the car.

The 4.23m long and 1.3m high (13.88ft x 4.27ft) car was 3D printed in four parts in under four days.

Once printed, the car was sanded and strengthened with an internal metal frame to withstand the month-long performance. The team also glued headlights, mudguards and door handles to create a more life-like appearance and provide a whole new immersive experience for theatre audiences.

‘Massivit 3D printing was the perfect solution to produce a lightweight replica of the car. Considering the tight production timeframe, it was impossible to realise this with another technology,’ said Florian Boje, Founder of GIҠFOR
