The Future of Cars Isn’t Just Automated, It’s 3D-Printed
We spoke with creators of first 3D-printed car to uncover future of additive manufacturing
From footwear to guns, 3D printing has made tremendous advancements both in the breadth of what can be produced and the sophistication of end products. Many future-forward enterprises have adopted the technology in an effort to cut costs and manufacture extraordinary utilities, and the machinery has even downsized for early adopters to get their hands on consumer-grade models. One of the most astonishing products to emerge from the movement thus far is a full-fledged car, which came out of a collaboration between Europe’s largest engineering firm Siemens and automotive manufacturer Local Motors.
