The automotive industry has always been on the lookout for faster prototyping and solutions for reducing the part's weight while retaining the structural strength. Here's a curated list of some of the best automotive 3D printing applications so far.
Exclusive, high-end manufacturers which produce a small number of cars have the luxury of 3D printing high-end, end-use parts. For manufacturers like Bugatti & Koenigsegg, 3D printing can cut costs for prototyping and enable exclusivity to be added to their cars.
While it makes sense to 3D print some high-end end-use parts, it just isn’t cost effective on a large scale. This is why you won’t find high-end 3D printed parts in mass-produced cars.
However, 3D printing can still serve as a great mass customization tool for lower-end manufacturers.
These days, 3D printing technologies are advanced enough to enable both prototyping and the production of parts made of high-performance materials.
One of the biggest benefits 3D printing brings to car manufacturers is the ability to cut costs and time needed for producing prototypes.
