Chinese automaker BYD Co. says it will be rolling out a five-seat battery electric vehicle with a 249-mile range that will hit the streets in the U.S. next year.
BYD’s website says it will be a big vehicle, weighing 4,453 pounds. It is expected to cost “slightly more than $40,000.” Recharge time for its lithium-ion batteries is expected to be between seven and nine hours on regular household current. Permanent magnet synchronous motors will drive the wheels, generating 268 HP and 406 lb-ft of torque.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
