3D-Printed Car Adds Drama to Opera

It was crafted as a set piece for the “Don Pasquale” opera performed in Italy.





A car is an excellent example of the breadth of screen printing, because of everything in it that is printed; but that never applied to the vehicle itself. This 3D-printed auto was crafted as a set piece for the “Don Pasquale” opera performed at La Scala in Milan. Italy-based printer Colorzenith used its Massivit 1800 3D printer to create the life-size replica of a Lancia Aurelia B24. The vehicle was printed in four parts in less than four days, fused together with a metal frame, then sanded and finished, to create a 14 x 4-foot lightweight prop for an iconic scene during which soprano Rosa Feola descends from the ceiling in the car.
