A 3D printed life-size replica of Lancia B24 for the Don Pasquale opera

Colorzenith, the print service provider has 3D printed a replica of Lancia B24, a classic Italian car for an opera performed in La Scala in Milan (Italy).

A lightweight car was required for an iconic scene for the moment the character Rosa Feola was supposed to descend from the ceiling to the stage while setting in the car.

Produced with the Massivit 1800 3D printer, the car is 4.23-m long and 1.3m high (13.88ft x 4.27ft). It was 3D printed in 4 parts in less than 4 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 lifelike appearance and provide a whole new immersive experience for theatre audiences.

Applications of 3D printing solutions in scenic design are still at their early stage in the art industry but already allow for a lot of creativity in set designs. Remember how WASP reimagined the set designs of the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma.

On the other hand, this also shows that 3D printing is not only limited to sculptures or replicas in the art industry.
