Eiffel Tower replica for Olympic Festival at Lake Most is finished (CZ)

The replica of the Eiffel Tower designed for the Olympic Festival at Lake Most has already produced all the parts that were created by original 3D printing from recycled ocean plastic oPET. On Monday, they will be loaded in Prague and transported to the event site at Lake Most. Subsequently, it will be completed and built into its final form within 5 days on-site. Visitors will be able to see it for the first time during the opening ceremony of the Olympic Festival on 25 July. And then for the entire duration of the event until 11 August.


The 12-metre tower on a five-metre-long pedestal, which consists of 1500 parts, was developed, printed within three months and will now be assembled for the Olympic Festival by the Czech company 3DDen. This unique piece is part of the cooperation between 3DDen and the Czech Olympic Committee. On Monday, July 15, all parts (interestingly, the largest of them is 3m long and weighs 300kg) will be transported by two trucks to the lake, where they will then be assembled into the final form by a five-member team of people within 5 days.


During the Olympic Games in Paris, which will take place from 26 July to 11 August, the sixth edition of the Olympic Festival will take place, this time at Lake Most.


"The Olympic Festival will offer over 50 sports to try, which is the highest number in the history of the event," said Nada Cerna, Director of Projects of the Czech Olympic Committee. "At the same time, we are looking forward to cheering on Czech athletes, because the Olympic Games will be in the same time zone for the first time in a long time. For the first time, we will also have an Olympic camp for fans and we believe that visitors will enjoy not only the whole day at the Olympic Festival but also falling asleep close to our version of the Eiffel Tower. It will be our Bridge to Paris."


The tower was built in Prague's Horni Pocernice. 3D printers of 3DDen's own production worked on it systematically on a daily basis.


"The whole process took almost 3 months, and it was necessary to produce and assemble about 1500 printed components. However, I like challenges, which is why I agreed to the offer to build such a monument, which is unique in the world," said Honza Hrebabecky, CEO and founder of 3DDen.



oPET, from which the replica of the Eiffel Tower is made, is a completely new recycled material, it may be a solution to the problem of polluting the planet with plastic often made for disposable purposes. The Czech startup 3DDen is the first in the world to use it for innovative 3D printing on its own printers. This creates a variety of objects from various statues, interior decorations, promotional items, sports cups, and furniture, to large installations where there are no limits to creativity and possibilities.
