Mechatronics Student, Ayush Wadehra, creates award-winning 3D printed replica of Van Gogh masterpiece

Ayush Wadehra displaying 3D printed, The Starry Night

Vincent Van Gogh once said, “What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?”

Clearly, Ayush Wadehra, who is going into fourth year as a Mechatronics student, took his love of Van Gogh and courage to technologically create an award-winning 3D printed version of The Starry Night – 131 years after the original was painted by Van Gogh, while living in isolation, in an asylum, in June 1889.

This 3D version has moving parts.
