Nissan reveals sculpture of Nissan Qashqai made with 3Doodler 3D printing pen

Grace Du Prez and her team where able to build the world’s biggest 3D printing pen sculpture. The sculpture of the Nissan Qashqai has a height of 1.6 meters, a length of 4.4 meters and was produced out of 8.6 miles of filament. As a 3D printing pen the popular 3Doodler was used – it prints PLA filament at 230°C through a 0.7mm nozzle.

The sculpture was created to celebrate 10 years Nisan Qashqai. The team building the sculpture was led bed Grace Du Prez. Du Prez is a graduate of the Royal College of Art, who now works exclusively with the 3D printing pen. She was joined by Niki Firman and Karsan Haval.

I’ve been drawing with 3Doodler’s 3D printing pens for a few years now, but this is by far and away my most ambitious commission to date. It demonstrates how far 3D printing technology has come and how it can be used by anyone.

The result is really astonishing – the sculpture was built in over 800 hours of work. In the future you might see it at some motor shows or as advertisement for the Nissan Qashqai Black Edition. So they will make advertisement for their own product but also for 3D printing technologies, especially for the 3Doodler.
