3D PRINT: DOWNTOWN SAN FRANCISCO

Steelblue

Autodesk partnered with creative agency Steelblue to create the largest 3D-printed model of San Francisco, representing 115 city blocks and including city landmarks like the TransAmerica Tower and the Bay Bridge. The model can be projection-mapped to show real-time data for traffic and other animated sequences.

 

Fabricated at Pier 9 with two Objet 500 Connex 3D printers, this print brings fuses digital design technologies with visions of San Francisco’s future. The model was created to help real estate developer Tishman Speyer with urban planning and construction decisions by providing a real-world visualization of how new buildings and civic infrastructure would impact inhabitants of the city.
