Prodrive is a great example of pushing the technology past pure prototyping and into functional parts. The other great thing about this use case example is that they really have a multi-tiered roll out plan for leveraging 3D printing. With that kind of solid roadmap, it's no wonder they are having some solid success.

This is really interesting.  It seems that the "printed" parts from these high end printers can really be used.  This definately revolutionizes machining.  With the right CAD environment and a variety of tools the speed with which one can prototype these days is breathtaking.

3D Printing has come so far

I love articles like this as because not only does it talk about the new technology but it also talks about how it was used in application.  And that is really neat.  I can imagine this car driving around with a bnuch of parts that are 3D printed.  I wish I could print out a new door for my car and fix that little door ding.  But since I can't I can stay inside and read cool stories like this about companies that are taking this new technology and stretching how they do things to take advantage of what can be done to come up with better products for the consumer.
