Superfans print out enormous 3D Fenway Park

Baseball fans need to check out this swell replica of Fenway Park created by a 3D printer.

The Green Monster looks so cute at such a small size. Warning: Miniature players and fans not included. Objet

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first game at Fenway Park, printing company Objet created an extremely accurate 1/200 scale model of the ballpark with a 3D printer.

With stout measurements of 3 feet by 5 feet, Objet referenced blueprints and current images of the home of the Red Sox to recreate the stadium in 3D software. The company then printed out 40 separate sections -- weighing 105 pounds total -- on an Objet Connex500 multi-material 3D printer.

"The replica captures even the finest details of Fenway, from the Green Monster and Pesky Pole to the exact number of lights and famed, red Ted Williams seat in right field," Objet said in a press release.

We have to admire the attention to detail, but perhaps Objet should contact some experienced model painters to finish off the place. The nude color mold almost seems fleshy-looking. In any case, does anyone else see the double use for this thing as an epic playset for Warhammer fans?
