1914 Grand Prix Delage Saved by 3D Scanning & 3D Printing
How do you save a priceless one of a kind grand prix race car and retain it’s historical integrity?
Saved by The Great War the 1914 Delage is one of the world’s oldest surviving Grand Prix race cars. Old technology meets new technology and with a little Aussie ingenuity this race car meets the track again – a global first in 3D Printing. “Boldness be my Friend” said Delage owner, Stuart Murdoch after they had tried fixing the engine with traditional methods such as welding. With nothing to lose, a collaboration of specialists know as Team Delage set about solving the problem using 3D technology-
