Are you driving a 3D printed car? Two years from now, your answer might be yes.
Articles about 3D printing have long talked about printing cars – except they were small, scale model cars. Now, KOR EcoLogic has announced a plan to produce Urbee 2, the first road-ready, fuel-efficient car built using 3D printing.
The project is in collaboration with RedEye On Demand, a rapid prototyping and direct digital manufacturing service, whose parent company is Stratasys. Once the KOR EcoLogic team completes the vehicle’s design using CAD software, a Stratasys 3D Printer will build the car using Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology.
