Customer Success Story: Dimensional Innovations Creates the World’s Tallest Freestanding 3D Printed Structure 

Customer Success Story: Dimensional Innovations Creates the World’s Tallest Freestanding 3D Printed Structure  Overland Park, Kansas – August 2022 – Dimensional Innovations created a monument for an NFL stadium and the result is the World’s tallest freestanding 3D printed structure. As a matter of fact, the new Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, home to the NFL’s Las  Vegas Raiders, is the epitome of modern comfort. The 1.8 million square foot, 65,000 seat behemoth  was inspired by futuristic luxury vehicles, and its overall impression is one of innovation and modernity.  Current team owner Mark Davis, however, wanted to bring along a bit of the past to the Raiders’ new  home. He envisioned a memorial to his late father and previous Raiders owner Al Davis that would  illustrate the scale of love his father had for his favorite NFL team.     That memorial is the Al Davis Memorial Torch, a gargantuan structure of a torch with a shimmering light  feature on top to simulate ever-burning flames. The sheer size of the nine-story-tall memorial made  manufacturing daunting for the vast majority of shops in the United States. Add in the strict parameters  set by the Raiders organization and Manica Architecture, the firm responsible for building the new  stadium, and the project became impossible for all but a handful. The memorial had to weigh under  […]
