3D printing in the automotive industry

3D printing in the automotive industry

 

The 3D printer is a device that has significantly improved the work associated with the design, production and repair of motor vehicles. For collectors and automotive enthusiasts there are also applications of the 3D printer. With this device you can "bring back to life" many historic models, personalize your vehicle by creating unique solutions. 3D printing means unlimited possibilities to create solutions that revolutionize the automotive industry at relatively low costs.

3D printers - how does it work?

 

The 3D printing device does not use ink. What is the factor that creates the print is defined no other than by thermoplastic raw materials, i.e. filaments. The raw materials that the device uses most often include plastic, glass, metal, resin, ceramics, and wood-like and rubber-like materials. A significant advantage of the 3D printer is the ability to combine materials, short execution time - printing an element takes from several to several dozen hours, depending on the complexity and size. The 3D printer is precise, the parts created in the printing process are not only used in research and education units. The development of three-dimensional printing allows the use of this technology in design departments and in production. Private users can individually take advantage of the possibility of printing a prototype or the necessary part.

From design to ready element

The first step in creating a vehicle part is to create its design in a CAD program. Joint designers and engineers create an element that properly presents and works together with the others as one of the elements of the whole vehicle. The option of using part printing speeds up the manufacturing process, allowing you to quickly eliminate errors on the printed model. Often prototypes of parts and entire sets of elements are used, which are used in production. The development leads to the more frequent printing of elements used in the production of vehicles for sale. Catchy advertising slogans argue that entire vehicles are based on 3D printing. In practice, these are body parts, dashboard and bumper assemblies, both in passenger cars and motorcycles. Thanks to the 3D printer, you can create a tuned machine by customizing the elements to your liking. Designing your own dashboard pattern is becoming popular, which can also be done in 3D printing technology.

3D printers are revolutionizing the automotive industry. Some car models already have the option to download the design from the manufacturer's website, but there are currently no 3D printers of this size to produce the entire model. Precise, reasonable prices, enabling printing of precise elements, 3D printers prove themselves in prototypes and sales models, they are also available for units that want to try their hand in the automotive industry.
