3D Printer To Build Car In 44 Hours

Amazing technology could be the future of manufacturing

The first 3D-printed car is scheduled to roll off its huge printer and onto Chicago streets Saturday as a display of the technology's possibilities in manufacturing.

Porsche wants you to 3D print your own Cayman

Have you got access to a 3D printer? Well lucky you, because as we're rapidly learning, the possibilities are virtually endless. And if your tastes lean towards the automotive (as we'd assume they do if you're reading this page), we've got good news.

A 3-D Printed Car To Drive Across America

The Urbee is shaped like a bean and may lead to practical advances in car's of tomorrow

You have heard of 3D printed tools, furniture and even guns. It is not surprising that the tech craze has caught on in the automotive space.

Ford engineer builds haptic shift knob with 3D printer, Xbox controller

Vehicles with manual transmissions have been equipped with shift indicators (illuminated or audible) for decades. While some are used to improve performance, most are designed to encourage more fuel-efficient driving. Regardless of the original objective, nearly all drivers become desensitized or learn to ignore the illuminated lights and arrows after just a few short hours behind the wheel.

Ford engineers going geek, using MakerBot 3D printers for prototype testing

In an attempt to build future vehicles or improve upon current models, many automakers have turned to 3D printers to create and test new prototype parts. Considering how important new cars are, you'd think automakers would spare no expense when acquiring such tools, but Ford is proving that 3D printers are not only affordable, but that they could someday become a household answer for many problems.

Aston Martin DB5 stunt doubles in Skyfall created by 3D printers

This is a spoiler alert: stop reading now if you haven't seen Skyfall and don't want to know anything about it.

Amazingly tiny 3D-printed cars have moving wheels, opening doors

If you haven't taken a second lift your head and look around, we have news for you: we live in the future. This is a world where we can bark orders into a small handheld device and instantly get answers. One where we can sketch up a design on a computer, press print and a machine will carve it out in exacting detail as many times as we like. Now someone has figured out how to scale-down 3D printin

Stratasys prints out Urbee plug-in hybrid concept with cool 3D tech

The Urbee concept vehicle has an interesting story to go with its sci-fi looks. See, the body was not built in the classic sense, but rather it was printed. Three dimensional printing has seen significant growth in certain markets, like with design and engineering firms looking for rapid prototyping. However, even very expensive 3D printers are limited to printing small objects that can fit in, at most, a few cubic feet. Stratasys, a 3D printing company, teamed up with engineering group Kor Ecol
