This is an absolutely incredible build by Giuseppe Guerini:
Giuseppe Guerini’s passion for the renowned Stuttgart automaker began twenty years ago when he bought his first Porsche. “I’ve had about sixty altogether, and I own three at the moment–1951, 1952, and 1958 models–as well as engines, spare parts, and documentation.”
As an avid 3D printing user, Guerini decided to connect his two passions and create a 1:4 scale model of one of his favorites, the engine of a vintage 1952 Porsche 356, the first production automobile of the German company. This was far from an easy undertaking. It required disassembling the engine, scanning each component, and modeling and printing hundreds of parts.
Images of the model spread quickly in maker community, and requests started flowing in, prompting Guerini to start creating replicas to sell to collectors all over the world. What started out as a hobby might soon turn into a job.
Read on to learn about Guerini’s journey, and discover how to transform a real-life engine into a digital model, choose the right materials, and convert a 3D print into a work of art.
