The automotive industry has always been the torchbearer for new trends and techniques. Not to our much surprise, it is the first sector to incorporate the 3D printing technique. Some of the major brands like Honda, BMW, Audi and others are the driving forces in taking forward this trend. Looking forward to the fast growing craze of this technique, it is absolutely a major futuristic innovation.
3D-printing also known as Additive Manufacturing (AM) mostly incorporates plastics of some sort to create objects layer by layer. Plastics being cheap, light, and easy to melt, are convenient to process. Metals, on the other hand, are heavy, costly, and melt at much higher temperatures, which make them a challenging material for 3D printing. Although, metals make a more reliable option in case of sturdy machines like cars and tractors.
The first 3D-printed supercar, the Blade is a perfect example of art meeting automotive technology. Divergent Microfactories are going for the same kind of concept as Local Motors, incorporating production locally and possibly open source car design. Backed with futuristic appearance and sturdy performance, Blade is sure to bring a new wave of technology in automotive industry.
