3D Printed Car

The technology of 3D printing is taking the automotive manufacturing industry by storm. In the latest news from Top Gear, car company Local Motors reveals plans for a fully 3D printed automobile called the ‘Strati’.

While not every piece of the car will be printed, the car lives up to its hype and claims assembly with only 40 pieces as opposed to a car’s usual 2,000 pieces saving time and production cost. The printer eventually spits out the entire pieces including seats, windshield, and other support structures by spraying a quick-harden carbon fiber and plastic mixture repeatedly until the part is completely built up. The parts are quickly assembled by a team of workers into the final product.
