GTA 5 fan creates amazing 3D print of game map
Since the game was released in 2013, Grand Theft Auto V players have spent a lot of time at San Andreas, including Dom Riccobene. According to Kotaku, the product designer spent hundreds of in-game hours collecting data, which he then used to 3D print an incredible map of the game’s fictional location. about 400 hours on the project, but the results were worth it. Riccobene told Kotaku it was “the most enjoyable and technically challenging project I’ve ever worked on.” It wasn’t just nice for him, though. A video of her creation has gone viral on Twitter, resulting in thousands of likes and retweets.
Riccobene’s Tweet can be found embedded below.

It’s truly amazing what Riccobene has been able to achieve with this card! Naturally, the Tweet above led to some fans on Twitter asking Riccobene if they could buy one, but the designer says he wouldn’t try to do so without a license from Rockstar Games because the risk would be too big. The creator did, however, consider selling one for charity. Now that this project is complete, it looks like Riccobene has moved on to manufacturing the Red Dead Redemption II map, so fans of that particular game might consider following it on Twitter.
The success of GTA V has been amazing to watch since the game’s release. With over 150,000 copies sold, it’s the second best-selling video game of all time, behind only Minecraft. Given the game’s success, it’s no surprise that many people have asked Riccobene about the possibility of getting one of these cards. But for now, they’ll just have to make do with the video!
Grand Theft Auto V is currently available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. You can check out our previous coverage of the game here.
