Stratasys Salutes the World Cup With 3D Printed Maracanã

2,778 views 2 weeks ago
Rio de Janeiro's legendary Arena Maracanã was originally built for the 1950 World Cup. More than 60 years later, it is still looking beautiful thanks to a recent renovation project by architectural firm Fernandes Arquitetos Associados.

Stratasys has captured the excitement and sleek new design of the renovated Maracanã with this unique 3D printed version.

Working with STL files provided by Fernandes Arquitetos Associados, we 3D printed Maracanã on the Objet500 Connex Multi-material 3D Printer (http://ow.ly/yTBEm) using rigid opaque (VeroWhitePlus) material (http://ow.ly/yTB8O). The model was assembled from just two parts -- the roof and the base.

Architects and other designers the world over are using Stratasys 3D printing to test their designs and present them to their customers for immediate feedback. Watch this short fun video to find out why they're yelling, "Goooooooooooooal!"
