    San Francisco 3D Printed

    This is pretty incredible. A large portion of San Francisco has been 3D printed in a scaled down model. Autodesk teamed with Steelblue to create this model. They used a Stratasys Connex 500 3D printer.The 3D print covers over 115 blocks of the city, and weighs a staggering 150 pounds. The total size of the model is 6 square feet, and can act as an amazing visualization tool for city planners.

    Representatives from Autodesk believe that this may be the largest 3D printed representation of a city ever constructed. This statement is not confirmed, but it would be hard to believe that there is another bigger one somewhere which has not received recognition. Check out the picture and video below of this amazing 3D print of San Francisco. What do you guys think?

    The Transamerica tower is missing, and they have buildings there that don't yet exist. I think this is a fictionalized version of what it could look like in the future. It's still pretty neat, though.

    was 4 years ago -so probably changed a fair bit since then.
    And there have definitely bee larger 3d printed cityscapes since then as well.
