For the last of the super cool (but expensive) 3D-printed cars, let’s not forget the Mercedes Benz Project Biome. Rather than produced with a 3D-printer, this car was grown from biological materials – 6 seeds, to be exact. The car would run on a liquid called BioNectar4534, use bioluminescence for headlights, and release oxygen into the air when it runs.
Although not printed, the Project Biome car was created using an AutoDesk 3D CAD modeling program.

There you have it – a mix of cool and popular 3D printed gadgets as well as an introduction to super cool cars created (mostly) with 3D printers. One wonders what new surprizes await in 2020.
