Listen to this quick 3D printing video about how one firm is doing more and more with 3D Printed auto parts
Redwood City-based Carbon3D – which developed Continuous Liquid Interface Production technology (CLIP) – a 3D printing technology that grows parts from UV curable resins at speeds as much as 25 to 100 times faster than conventional 3D printing processes. The resulting parts boast mechanical properties that are applicable for a range of vehicle needs.
Designed and built by NTU engineering undergraduates, this urban solar electric car was built with an innovative 3D-printed body shell that has 150 parts. The interior is simple and made out of plastic. However, the designers and engineers said they took care about the comfort part as well, while trying to keep things simple and […]
Here is the first-ever miniature 3D-printed chocolate, sugar candy and plastic toy 2015 Ford Mustangs. The chocolate 3D printer is an all-new prototype, and the chocolate Mustangs are warmed and finished after for a dark chocolate glow. What kind of 3d printer kit did they use for this? And how is it on gas?
The One:1… The name for this car is based off its one to one ratio of horsepower to weight (in kilograms). The weight is at 1340 kilograms, so this beast tops out with a coma-inducing 1340 horses under the hood. Where does 3d-printing come into this? As you can imagine, keeping the weight down is […]
Here is Porsche’s latest offer: A dream can only come true, if you give it a shape. Why not with your 3D printer? We offer you the Cayman as 3D printing data. Create, print and colorize your personal Cayman. And: we would love to see the results: Just paste a link to your pictures as […]
Urbee is embracing Digital Manufacturing as essential to the design of an environmental car. Engineered to safely mingle with traffic, the two passenger vehicle will have its entire exterior and interior 3D printed. “A future where 3D printers build cars may not be far off after all.”
