‘Skyfall’ Producers Used 3D Printed Cars Instead Of Real Aston Martins

While seeing James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 get abused may hurt some car lovers, fret not, as the cars used were 3D printed cars.

Producers have utilized the revolutionary technology of 3D printed cars instead of destroying the ultra-luxurious Aston Martins.

If a car was lost in a shot, or if a shot needed to be redone, the producers were able to simply print another car, using a large scale 3D printer.

Three replica cars a third of the size of the actual 1960’s Aston Martin were used in the production of the latest Bond flick.

The models were made by British firm Propshop Modelmakers Ltd., which specialize in the production of film props, and used Voxeljet to print the cars.

“Propshop commissioned us to build three plastic models of the Aston Martin DB5,” voxeljet CEO Dr. Ingo Ederer.

“We could have easily printed the legendary sports car in one piece at a scale of 1:3 using our high-end VX4000 printer, which can build moulds and models in dimensions of up to eight cubic metres. 


“But the British model builders were pursuing a different approach.

“To ensure that the Aston Martin was as true to detail as possible, and for the purpose of integrating numerous functions into the film models, they decided on an assembly consisting of a total of 18 individual components. 


“The entire body is based on a steel frame, almost identical to how vehicles were assembled in the past,” said Ederer.


“In addition to the automotive industry, foundries, designers and artists, the film industry represents an entirely new customer base for voxeljet. 


“3D printing is on the cusp of a great future in the film industry. 


“The technology offers fantastic opportunities, since it is usually much faster, more precise and more economical than classic model construction,” says Ederer.
