3D Printed Ford Torino

Artist Ioan Florea used 3D printing technologies, nano-materials, and his original transfer technique to customize a classic Ford Torino. The Torino's body was manufactured on an assembly line introduced by Henry Ford during the Second Industrial Revolution and is fused with the latest 3D printing technologies and materials, becoming the symbol of the Third Industrial Revolution. Florea has developed a process that produces a "liquid metal" finish with the highest coefficient of reflectivity Meet artist Ioan Florea at Inside 3D Printing & Maker Pavilion to learn more about his secret process and see the 3D Printed Ford Torino.

An Inside Look at the Conference

Watch 3D printers in action and meet with top 3D printing companies and experts at Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo. Here's a peek inside our 2013 events in New York City, San Jose, and Singapore.

3D Printing in the News

"After years of being lumped in with other maker-oriented technologies, 3D printing finally has its own professional conference, the Inside 3D Printing event." -- CNET

"For two days, New York became the center of the 3D-printing world, with some of the industry's leading companies gathering at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center..." -- Mashable

"One thing that impressed me was how well the crowd mixed—it included plenty of people who were completely new, lots of people from the “desktop” 3d printing world, and plenty of people from medical and aerospace, whose printers cost several times more than most of us make in a year." -- Make

"Seeing an audience of 1,000+ is a speaker’s dream come true. That’s what I saw when walking onto the stage early Tuesday morning. The attendees were a mix of NY investors, analysts, startup companies, and corporations of all types." -- Wohlers Talk

"It's clear that 3D printing can spell big opportunity for brands." Take a closer look at how majore brands use 3D printing. -- iMedia Connection

"I believe we’re on the verge of a major breakthrough in design for manufacturing in being able to take something from the concept of something from your mind and translate that into a 3D object and really intuitively on the computer and then take that virtual 3D object and to be able to make it real just by printing it. It’s going to revolutionize design for manufacturing in the 21st century." -- Elon Musk
