Submission + - DIY: 3D Print Your Own Porsche Cayman (motorauthority.com)

cartechboy writes: We know 3D printing, which some call the new industrial revolution, is taking off in a big way. Now, your 3D printer can make an officially sanctioned (if miniature) model of the 2014 Porsche Cayman. Porsche has released 3D printing data to allow you to replicate the Cayman's form in your own home. (Presumably also saving you the trouble of driving a full-size one through a massive 3D scanner.) Just how big you print your Cayman depends on what your 3D printer will allow, but the model looks remarkably accurate. The download is available on Porsche’s website, and can be used to print cars in a variety of sizes and colors, depending on how large your 3D printer is and the filament used. Models are all well and good, but who will be the first to 3D print a full-sized car?
