How Many 3D Printers Does it Take to Rebuild the Parthenon?

3Dnatives | Jan. 16, 2017 ~ A complete model of the Parthenon has been 3D printed on EnvisionTEC printers through a collaboration between DL Additive and Arketyp 3D, according to the Paris-based blog, 3Dnatives.com.

The Parthenon is one of the world’s greatest monuments, dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena, and is known for its distinctive and decorative columns and sculptures, making it a challenge for fine reproduction.

Among the EnvisionTEC models used for the project:

  • The Ultra 3SP, which prints quickly and precisely with complex geometry parts.
  • The Vector 3SP, which has a work space 29% larger than the Ultra 3SP and a higher printing speed. It was used to create larger rooms.
  • The Apollo Plus, which is frequently used by the jewelry industry. It reproduces the finest details while maintaining a high quality and high reliability.

The project was a commissioned by a private individual who was thrilled with the final result, telling 3Dnatives: “The result was beyond my expectations and still is today. We are facing a masterpiece of miniature reproduction.”
