Industrial-size 3D printers have opened up new opportunities for the automotive industry.
In a crowded automotive marketplace, knowing how to gain the edge over the competition is critical to ensuring prosperity – and that’s why the world’s most renowned companies in this sector have turned to 3D printing.
With Stratasys technology it is possible to build durable concept models, prototypes, tooling and low-volume end-use parts on-site, allowing engineers and designers to work more efficiently, test more thoroughly and gain full confidence in the production process.
For developing door seals, gaskets and shock absorption components, for example, advanced rubber-like materials make the process seamless. Translucent materials facilitate fluid analysis, while acrylic-like materials can replicate dashboard parts with superior precision.
When models look and function like the real part, any issues can be identified and addressed immediately so that exacting tolerances can be satisfied and perfection can be achieved.
