Mexico-based print service provider, Moti Digital 3D printed a towering, head-turning skeleton for the Mexican Festival of Light celebrations in Guadalajara.
The four-day event explores how light and artwork in perfect harmony and encapsulates the culture of Guadalajara. Moti Digital used its Massivit 1800 3D Printing Solution to create a model that would ‘wow’ visitors to the event and demonstrate the impressive capabilities of large format 3D printing technology.
Measuring at 8.40m (27.52ft) long and 3.60m (11.8ft) tall, the breath-taking skeleton was produced in just four days. The painted skeleton was positioned inside the Plaza Tapatía fountain pool and illuminated at night, where thousands of festival-goers were able to sit in its arms.The experience generated huge amounts of conversation and photos that featured prominently across social media platforms.
The lifelike skeleton will also feature at this year’s Festival del Día de los Muertos, taking place throughout Mexico from the 31st October.
