A balloon. A race car. Yep,  it’s a balloon race car. Toys for boys. Or cool girls.

inflate a standard size balloon, wrap it over the nozzle of the car and vroom.. off to the races. Using 3D print technology though made me investigate on how to reduce material usage in order to lower the price. Converting the body to a wireframe mesh was the first step to achieve this whereas the application of the diagrid tessellation fit the body really well and provided a sufficient structural integrity.

This design is loosely based on a Ferrari-500 race car.

Dimensions: 14.8 w x 5.3 d x 4.7 h cm — 5.8 w x 2.1 d x 1.8 h Inch
