Using a 3D pen and some masking tape, Nissan was able to create a full-sized replica of the new Qashqai Black Edition, celebrating the car’s official launch. Using an extremely skilled team of designers and some 3D pens supplied by 3Doodler, the doodled version is an exact match to the actual car.
Using over eight miles of plastic strands, the approximately fourteen by five-foot replica took over three weeks to complete. Artist Grace Du Prez led the team of artists that created the doodled version by first drawing key sections of the car. As they added contour lines to highlight the actual profile of the vehicle, they used masking tape to fill in gaps to create the panels. The artists then created the webbing that connected the various panels together, which is when the car began to take shape.
The 3Doodler pens the artists used to construct the different patterns and pieces heat up solid plastic to 450-degrees Fahrenheit. The softened plastic is then pushed through a small nozzle as it cools, hardening into the desired shape and length.
