A balloon. A race car. Yep, it’s a balloon race car. Toys for boys. Or cool girls.
I got the idea for this balloon-propelled car from a similar toy found in a shop. 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.
available in white, red, pink, blue or purple.
