IDC Models turned a dream into reality for Red Bull Racing by taking the surface data provided by Sony Playstation/Polyphony and turning it into a solid and full-scale model of the Red Bull car. The technologies utilised in order to create the life-size car model included: CNC Machining, Stereolithgraphy, Selective Laser Sintering, Vacuum Forming, Drape Moulding and GPR Moulding.
IDC Models was challenged with the task to complete the life-size model of the dream car in just four weeks. Using data supplied by Polyphony in Japan, the model has been assembled in sections to its full size of 4.75 meters long by 2.2 meters wide. Each model section was CNC machined and then fitted together and finished to give a seamless surface finish.
IDC Models was selected for its outstanding model making reputation combined with its facilities and flexibilities. IDC Models is one of only a few rapid prototyping bureaus in the UK with large-scale CNC.
