Actually, put a motor & some batteries in it (oh, and wheels and a steering wheel and...) - it would be easier to fit an electric drive into that wacky chassis than an ICE with its bulkier and less-flexible supporting hardware. Let me be the first to stand in line to put one in *my* garage!
Cabe, actually few final parts on high-volume, production model street cars are made from 3D printers--I wish we'd gotten that far! But 3D printing *is* used in prototyping quite a bit for those models. 3D printing is also used extensively in very high-end cars and race cars to make final parts, and especially for replacement parts for race cars between races.
You can't put an engine and wheels on it (plus a few extras) and drive off. Besides, they'd all have to be redesigned, too. But this car body is a stunning example of what can be done when the tools for designing and making it are a lot less constraining.
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
