Man 3D-printing his own replica Aston Martin DB4
Ivan Sentch, a programmer from Auckland, is printing the British GT. Using a Nissan Skyline GTS25T as a donor car, Sentch is going to print the Aston's body with a $499 solidoodle home 3D printer. He's kept a blog of the project since February, although he actually started printing in December of 2012. The posts offer intricate details on the process, including some of the unique problems being experienced. They make for a fascinating read, even if you aren't all that familiar with the subject matter.
As of his last post on July 26, Sentch has 72 percent of the body printed, while a prior post indicates that 52 percent of the car is assembled. Head on over to Sentch's blog for a full rundown of the progress on this intriguing project.
