Material: Reinforced Polycarbonate Composite

Product: Al Davis Memorial Torch at the Las Vegas Raiders Stadium

Company: Dimensional Innovations

To commemorate the late, long-standing owner of the Las Vegas Raiders, Al Davis, Dimensional Innovations were brought in to create something momentous and thought provoking. Designed to stand at over nine stories tall The Al Davis Memorial Torch is the centre piece of the Raiders stadium.

Thermwood’s Large Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) system was chosen because other fabrication methods could not replicate the complexities in the shape without creating a lot of waste materials. Not only were there material costs to consider but the environmental impact of the waste.

225 individual pieces were 3D printed from carbon fibre and the torch would become the world’s tallest 3D-printed structure.

Dimensional Innovations, based in Kansas City, are a 270 strong team who take ideas from concept to completion specialising in large 3D structures.
