3D printers used to create Aston Martin DB5 models for Skyfall
If you haven’t popped up at the nearest cinema and caught the latest Bond movie, Skyfall, we sincerely suggest you read no further. For those who are not to be mired by spoilers, here’s an interesting fact in regards to the Aston Martin DB5 that features in this film. The 1964 Platinum Coupe you see being thrashed about in this film isn’t the real $4.6 million car. Instead, the makers used a body-double for the car!
The model was created using a 3D printer by Voxeljet, an Augsburg, Germany, company. Three one-third scale models of the car were created, one of which was blown up in the film. One of these models was also recently auctioned by Christie’s, sold for a whopping $99,041!
