Leveraging 3D Printing Technology in the Creation of the “Ferrari” Movie


Michael Mann’s film “Ferrari,” which premiered in Italy on December 14th, is set in the automobile-focused city of Modena. The movie, inspired by Brock Yates’ 1991 biography “Enzo Ferrari: Man and Machine,” provides a deep look into the life of Enzo Ferrari, the renowned founder of the luxury sports car brand. The movie features a celebrated cast with stars like Adam Driver, Penélope Cruz, Shailene Woodley, and Patrick Dempsey. Unique to this film is the input from CRP Technology, an Italian firm specializing in 3D printing. In the creation of Ferrari, 3D printing technology was a pivotal element, adding an innovative twist to this production.

Operating close to Ferrari’s headquarters in “Motor Valley”, CRP Technology had a close collaboration with Michael Mann’s film crew. Utilizing a 3D printing process, selective laser sintering or SLS, and the application of Windform composite materials, CRP Technology made a significant contribution by creating functional parts for the movie. Furthermore, the firm’s experience in additive manufacturing allowed for a swift creation and delivery of these parts.

3D Printing’s Influence on “Ferrari” in Cinema

The manufacturer, renowned for its advances in additive manufacturing, produced and delivered various accessories such as driver’s helmet parts (visor) and stand elements. The meticulous design of these items was achieved using CRP Technology’s SLS process, ensuring optimum precision and authenticity for the time period. Selected materials include glass-fiber-filled Windform GT, carbon-fiber-filled Windform XT 2.0, and rubber-like thermoplastic elastomer Windform RL, chosen for their mechanical properties and adaptability.

The CRP Technology team played a crucial role in this collaboration, managing to produce the necessary parts quickly, in line with the film’s schedule. The rapid design and delivery of the functional accessories therefore proved highly efficient in record time. The film’s production team spoke very positively of CRP Technology’s contribution, praising the company for its professionalism and the outstanding quality of the 3D printed parts. This partnership not only underlines CRP Technology’s expertise in 3D printing, but also reinforces its reputation as a reliable partner for innovative projects. As such, it opens up future opportunities for the company to expand its influence in the film industry and reflects previous projects where 3D printing has already been used to make movies.
