3D printed Aston Martin DB4

A New Zealand native by the name of Ivan Sentch is “sculpting” his very own Aston Martin DB4 in his garage using a 3D printer, and basing it mostly off a Nissan Skyline GTS.

Ivan Sentch builds the parts by slicing components into sections that fit the 3D printer, then stiches them together.

The 3D printer from solidoodle costs $499.

Sentch purchased the 3D drawing of the DB4 from turbosquid.com.

A space frame chassis will be built for the car, and much of its internals will be sourced from a donor Nissan Skyline GTS25T (a RWD sports coupe that was never sold stateside).

The drawing was modified to remove unnecessary components.

According to Sentch, 72% of the parts have been printed, but the project is years from completion.

While Sentch said he's new to the process of 3D printing, the New Zealand-based software engineer has previously built a 250 GTO replica.

So far, he's created over 2500 fiberglass molds.

Work has yet to start on the interior.

Ultimately a mold will be created for the fiberglass shell.
