Photo: Nissan has created the world’s largest sculpture using innovative 3D pen technology, drawing a stunning full-sized replica of the new Qashqai Black Edition to celebrate the crossover’s launch. Led by artist Grace Du Prez, the team of artists brought the Qashqai Black Edition to life with an astonishing 13.8 kilometres of plastic strands.
The Guinness World Records world record for the largest 3D puzzle measures 2.56 m tall, and 1.28 m in diameter, and was created by FONA Dental s.r.o. (Slovakia) at the Schokoladenmuseum in Köln, Germany, and measured on 11 March 2015.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest 3D printed structure; it consists of 1.504 m³ (53.11 ft³) of 3D printed material and was achieved by RISE Immersion Subject English (China) for their structure ‘3D Printed Future City’, unveiled in Beijing, China on 20 August 2016.
Car manufacturer Nissan has produced the world’s biggest 3D printing pen sculpture. It’s a full-sized physical render of the Nissan Qashqai Black Edition and it’s made up of an incredible 8.6 miles of filament.
Grace Du Prez led the team that created this 4.4m-long and 1.6m-tall model.
It took three weeks and more than 800 hours to produce this stunning work of art using 3Doodler 3D printing pens and nothing more.
This pen heats the PLA filament to 230 degrees Centigrade before extruding it through the 0.7mm tip. That’s 0.7mm of surface area to draw an entire SUV.
The Qashqai isn’t on sale in the US, but it is Europe’s premium crossover and Nissan produces 58 of them every single hour at its plant in Sunderland in the UK.
