Model of Elon Musk’s Hyperloop 3D-printed

August 21, 2013

Five designers set out to build a 3D-printed model of Elon Musk’s Hyperloop. Each designer took a component of the Hyperloop concept and designed digital 3D models based on images released by Musk. The model consists of elevated tubes that are supported by pillars. There are passenger transport capsules that run through the tubes and a station where people will load and unload.

After the models were designed in various computer aided design (CAD) software, the group used 3 different 3D printers to print the parts layer by layer. They are full-color and made of s sandstone-like material. The team then assembled the parts to create the scale model of the Hyperloop.
