3D printed Fenway park model tours Boston

Last month we explained how Objet’s office in Boston, 3D printed Fenway Park to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the home to the Red Sox. They began with some of the blueprints from the Boston Inspectional Services Department. Then, along with some photos, they then created an STL file for 3D printing on an Objet Connex 500 multi-material 3D printer.

The 3′ x 5′ model is about 1/200th scale, and includes 40 interlocking, printed sections and weighs 105 pounds. The high print resolution of the Objet 500 3D printer allowed the model to include such noticeable details as Pesky’s Pole, Ted Williams’ red seat, and the Green Monster (including seats atop). It also includes the exact number of lights, concourses, dugouts and bullpens.

Today, we bring you the new Objet video that serves as the finale to the Fenway Stadium centennial story. It includes a very cool time-lapse clip that shows some of the individual 3D printed parts on the Objet Connex 500 3D printer, and some reactions of Bostonians to the model.
