The creative agency Steelblue has worked with Autodesk to design a 3D model of San Francisco’s skyline in 2017, when major construction projects will be completed.
The model commissioned by Thisman Speyer was 3D printed at a scale of 1:1250 on Stratasys’ Objet Connex500. The very detailed 115 square city blocks of the SOMA neighbourhood add up to a total size of 182.88 x 182.88 cm (6 x 6 foot). Steelblue printed the model a few times using different materials like VeroWhite and VeroClear.
Steelblue and Autodesk have plans to print other cities as well as to expand on the San Francisco map.
