3D Printing Research Circle – they will print whatever you want

In three weeks they created a full-size openwork replica of the Ferrari Lusso. They did it using 3D pens and this is just one of the many projects, on which they have worked or are still working. The queue of people counting on support for subsequent initiatives is still growing.

“It was a great adventure and a chance to strongly integrate our team,” Ewelina Zaremba, the president of the Circle, recalls working on the Ferrari.

The model was created especially for the 3D Printing Days held in March in Kielce. The idea came from our students' sponsor – WOLFix. The printed replica was supposed to stand next to the real car. However, there were no specific guidelines on how to conjure up a Ferrari using pens. Primarily because there is only one such replica of a car known to be in existence, but this is, first of all – of a different brand (Nissan Qashqai), and second of all – practically nothing is known about how to do it. Therefore, a group of twelve Circle members had to rely on the sponsor's tips and their own creativity. The students experimented a lot. Among other things, they modified the 3D pens to streamline their work. “We wanted them to print faster, so we made some minor changes and it worked,” says Mateusz Maszkowski.
