2:10 The Aston Martin Replica - Ivan Sentch - An Auckland computer programmer is such an Aston Martin car fan, that he's decided if he can't buy one, he'll build one instead. But this is a very different build !! Ivan Sentch is putting together a 1961 Aston Martin DB4 replica with the help of a desktop 3D printer - using the 3D printed components. With the price of a real restored DB4 starting well over the 400 thousand mark, it's certainly a cheaper way of fulfilling your dream, and building it with his Solidoodle, 2nd Gen 3D printer is attracting a lot of interest in the technology world.
