Racing to Additive: Race Teams Look to 3D Printing

A number of race teams are finding that 3D printing and rapid prototyping is a means to an end—and that end is winning races.


Stratasys and Pantone Achieving Design Intent

Stratasys has signed an agreement with Pantone such that the company’s J750 and J735 PolyJet 3D printers are endorsed by Pantone as meeting the PANTONE Validated standards.

Printing Production

There is clearly a growing interest in how the additive process can be further moved from limited production to, well, production.


Audi and 3D

“Design is one of the most important buying decisions for Audi customers,” says the company’s Dr. Tim Spiering, who continues, “therefore it’s crucial we adhere to supreme quality standards during the design and concept phase of vehicle development.”

Additive, Here and Now

Some people insist that 3D printers and other additive manufacturing will remove metal cutting and injection molding from the manufacturing industry. Manufacturers wonder how long until they are able to 3D-print high-volume production parts. Capabilities exist right now that may be surprising.

Evolve Advances Additive—Manufacturing

If you’re interested in additive manufacturing—even interested while fully thinking that you really need some reasonable production volumes, say of 15,000 to 20,000 parts, and know that what’s out there right now pretty much is limited to a fraction of that number—then here’s an acronym to know: STEP, and a company to stay aware of: Evolve Additive Solutions.

Printing Prototypes

Skorpion Engineering, an Italian firm with operations in both Milan and Turin, is deploying 3D printers from Stratasys to produce complex prototypes 50 percent faster than it was able to do when it was using clay modeling to produce components.

Stratasys Enables 3D Printing to Go Long

Three-dimensional printing, which literally builds objects out of thin air, debuted more than 25 years ago.

Print Parts on Saturday, Race on Sunday

The McLaren-Honda Formula One race team plans to use a Stratasys 3D printer at next week’s Bahrain Grand Prix to quickly modify and produce parts during practice sessions ahead of the race.

Ford’s Approach to Additive Manufacturing

Although 3D printing has become something that is hip an almost artisanal among the digital cognoscenti and within the maker movement, there is the set that contains 3D printing as a subset—additive manufacturing—which is something that is being pursued in earnest by a number of mass manufacturers in order to achieve parts and products the likes of which would be difficult if not completely impossible to produce with conventional methods.


Ford Begins 3D Printing Pilot Tests

Ford Motor Co. has become the first carmaker to use the Infinite Build 3D printer it developed with Stratasys Ltd.’s to make large-scale test parts.


BMW Invests in 3D Printing Startup

Desktop Metal Inc. says it raised $45 million in its third round of financing to bring total investment in the Burlington, Mass.-based 3D printing startup to $97 million.

Lightweighting Special Coverage: Light, Strong and Printed

Advances in additive manufacturing technology can potentially result in the proliferation of more lightweight, printed parts.


Laser Scanning for Improved Prototyping

When you’re doing production prototype work for Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), you’ve (1) got to be good and (2) you’ve got to be able to prove it.  Which is what Redditch, U.K.-based Birmingham Prototypes discovered when it began to supply JLR with stampings and brackets a few years back.


When CAD Isn't Additive

With the increasing popularity and advantage of additive manufacturing, a different set of design tools are required.
