3D Printing in Automotive:

With 3D Printing, you can print highly accurate, functional prototypes or tools that can withstand lots of abuse. This gives engineers and designers the ability to improve and test designs quickly. And it cuts down lead times to days, instead of weeks compared to traditional methods.

  • Concept models
  • Functional testing
  • Custom tools & parts
  • Jigs, fixtures & gauges
  • Small production runs

Using 3D printing, Volkswagen Autoeuropa can develop customized solutions to address specific problems, re-engineer application of concepts applied on auxiliary assembly, get rid of paperwork, and shrink implementation time.

Why is 3D Printing going to be future in in automotive?

  • 3D printing shrinks the development process from months to a matter of days
  • You’re able to test ideas quickly and discover what does and doesn’t work. New iterations have no cost penalties
  • It’s easy to personalize and tweak parts to uniquely fit your needs at no extra cost and in just a matter of hours
  • Engineers can discuss a design with peers or rapidly test the market potential at a trade-show
  • You can verify a design before investing in an expensive molding tool

3D printed examples in automotive

Custom Ford Fiesta headlights

Design validation

Validate the manufacturability of the design at early stages by printing the actual part. New iterations can be easily made in-house in a few hours, with no cost penalties.

Fit testing custom 3D printed intakes

Fit testing

With 3D printing, companies like Eventuri are able to quickly create prototypes and perform functional and fit testing before developing the final carbon-fibre parts.

Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping is a group of techniques used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part or assembly using three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) data

3D Printing and other digital prototyping tools are now buzzwords in the creative world.

Day 1: CAD Software
Day 2: 3D Printing
Day 3: Power tools like power drill, angle grinders and jig saw
Day 4: Laser Cutting
Day 5: Basics of electronics and Arduino
Day 6: Project build time

This looks like a crash course on tools – but it’s really about getting you started on that dream project you’ve wanted to build. You’ll learn from experts who’ll be there to guide you through the sessions. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got rudimentary or no technical knowledge. We will begin at the basics. And then set you off on your journey of innovation and tinkering.

Just bring your attitude, laptop, and lunch boxes. All materials, tools and insights for the sessions are on us.

    Outstanding! 5

    I spent at least 2 hours daily working on the course and this course week took me a month to complete. The problem sets are designed in such a way that one is forced to read and do further research to accomplish them.
