Ever since the rise of 3D printing, people have been trying to print all kinds of things from forks to, more recently, guns. If you’re a motor head, what could be more amazing than if could print your own car? It would be even better if you could create a CAD model of an all time favorite classic car.

A man in New Zealand is creating an Aston Martin replica on his Solidoodle, 2nd Gen 3D printer desktop. Everybody wants a classic Aston Martin, a Jaguar E type, or a BMW 2002 in their garage. Not everyone can afford one, but it does seem a lot more affordable these days with a 3D printer. You can read more on the story here: Solidoodler 3D-Printing Car or Replica DB4 Project.
