3D printing for rapid prototyping is one of the most popular applications of 3D printing. Producing usable parts or experimenting with designs quickly and at low cost is a great way for engineers and industrial designers to adapt their creations to real life applications.
Racing Car Improvements
Racing car producer - Arrinera Automotive S.A. - was looking for an optimum solution to produce car-part prototypes. The engineering process requires the continuous improvement of elements. Creating prototypes with previous production methods extended the time needed and involved high costs.
Frequent changes of a model’s shape – the diameter or length – are not as problematic as they used to be. A new model can be printed in just over a dozen hours.
