3D Printed Ark of the Covenant: Raiders of the Lost Tech

 |  |  |  |  |  November 7, 2012


Raiders of the Lost Ark is still one of my favorite movies of all time, and at the center of that film was the quest for the mysterious lost Ark of the Covenant. Now, you can own your own miniature version of the Ark, intricately crafted using 3D printing technology.

This mini version of the Ark was created using a 3D printer, and is made from 10-karat gold-plated stainless steel. It’s amazingly detailed, with every little nook and cranny down to the winged creatures on the top. It was made by Canadian artist Matthew C. of Geomatrix Studio, and measures 7.8″(L) x 4″(W) x 3.4″(H).

Due to the gold-plating, it’s very expensive, selling for $3400 Canadian Dollars (~$3514 USD). However, Matthew will also take special orders for the Ark in antique bronze or stainless steel, with prices starting at $800 Canadian (~$805 USD). That’s still way less expensive and dangerous than traveling around the world on a quest against a bunch of hateful Nazis. Speaking of which, I wonder if this thing would melt the faces off of evil action figures.
