103 year old car saved by 3d Printer
When the engine of the only surviving 1914 Grand Prix Delage developed irrepairable internal cracks something out of the ordinary was called for to get it back on the road. Philip Guilfoyle, an Industrial Designer, who focuses on heritage automotive projects employing digital technology for vehicle restorations managed the resurrection project. Using 3D Laser scanning Wysiywg 3D engineers scanned the original engine ensuring it was captured with an accuracy that even reflected the original casting imperfections including hammer marks. The only facility in Australia with a suitable sand printer was at the CSIRO 3D facility in Melbourne, from that mould a new block was cast in cast iron to original specifications.
