meticulous scale model of gaudi's sagrada familia rendered using 3Doodler PRO


 

using a 3Doodler PRO, a professional-grade 3D printing pen, german artist cornelia kuglmeier has created a scale model of the sagrada familia — antoni gaudi’s masterpiece basilica in barcelona. taking more than 350 hours and over 1,000 strands of 3Doodler plastic to complete, the miniature architectural model has been constructed in painstaking detail, replicating the structural facets of the existing site. after thoroughly researching the original plans for the church, and piecing together a complete stencil of the entire structure, kuglmeier spent three months meticulously making the scale model.

the 3Doodler PRO‘s unique features became important tools in the project’s completion: tactile adjustable dials for temperature and speed, a fan for control over the cooling of the plastics, and the ability to create structures with wood, copper, bronze, nylon, and polycarbonate materials.

 

kuglmeier’s model captures the striking architectural facets of gaudi’s original designs — from minute details on the façade, to ornate nature-inspired decorations on the spires. sometimes working up to 10 hours a day, kuglmeier says that she was inspired ‘to complete what gaudi never saw finished in his own lifetime.’
