//benitez_vogl’s VS:0.02 [gridiron] interprets game data of an American football game visually in sculptural form. The data of a single 60 minute american football game is used to generate a 3D printed visually depiction condensing the game into a single frame.
The game data is publicly available and we analyze the travel of the ball in the game for every play. We then use 3D software to build arcs based on the distance the ball travels. In order to keep the flow of the game recognizable, the teams are assigned a side, the kickoff team starts from the right hand side. Plays are numerically advanced from the back to the front.
The print below of Super Bowl 49 took 5 days to complete. We used the re:3D Gigabot printer which has a build volume of 24″ x 24″ x 24″ (60 x 60 x 60 cm).
Please see the video at the end of the page for further explanation and a timelapse video of the 5 day print.
