3D Printing for the Automotive Industry

Enable rapid automotive design cycles, simplify assembly requirements and eliminate inventory waste using industrial 3D Printing.

The automotive industry has always emphasized maximizing production technologies and efficiency. 3D printing is now allowing for a rapid growth in more efficient forms and reducing costs using industrial 3D workflow software.

New forms and lightweight automotive components are able to be realized using new principles of efficient engineering. Selection from over 150 materials and post-processing methods from industrial 3D print services ensures quality production with a click.

Experimenting with new materials will open the doors to new concepts and ideas that can be achieved with a new 3D print file rather then a new factory configuration. Because the costs of individualization fall dramatically with 3D printing, we also expect that the future will contain personalized cars as part of the sale.

3D printing workflow management software allows for efficient, on-demand production of complex 3D components such as engines in a single print. This can lead to big savings in personnel and assembly costs - and the gains will only increase as 3D production times decrease. It reduces inventory costs because stored 3D print material can be used to print-on-demand components that are used over the course of a day. It can automate the pull production process to achieve incredibly lean manufacturing.

Implementing a 3D printing software solution will introduce an innovative new way of “seeing” the supply chain that not only impacts on brand image and cars efficiency, but also contributes to reducing costs and optimizing processes across the whole sector.
