California doctor’s 3D-printed sculpture breaks Guinness World Record

UPI – A Southern California doctor broke a Guinness World Record by assembling a 3D-printed sculpture of a human measuring 19 feet and 10 inches tall.

Dr Vinson Eugene Allen of Gardena said he made his first 3D-printed sculpture of a doctor to adorn a Los Angeles billboard advertising his urgent care centres.

Allen said people suggested to him the statue could be a Guinness World Record, but when he researched the record for largest 3D-printed sculpture of a human, he found it wasn’t quite large enough.

Allen decided to create a second, larger statue that he dubbed The Statue of Inspiration. The 3D-printed figure of a doctor stands 19 feet and 10 inches tall. He said it took 12 weeks for a team of nine people to print the pieces of the statue and assemble them.

“The obstacles were overwhelming, but as we shared stories about ‘who wears a size 45 shoe’, the fun of creation began to overcome the obstacles,” Allen told Guinness World Records. “My advice to anyone and everyone is: Dream Big. Stay Focussed. Let no one tell you what you can’t do.”

Allen’s sculpture took the record from British man James Bruton, who assembled a 3D-printed sculpture of a person in 2017 that stood at 11 feet and 10 inches tall.
