Automotive giant Nissan is relying on a small farm of BCN3D printers in its Barcelona factory to fabricate 700 tools, jigs, and fixtures in its car assembly lines so far. We developed a digital library for you to see the specifications of each part. On a tour of their facilities, Trim & Chassis Manufacturing Kaizen Engineer Enric Ridao and Manager of Maintenance & Engineering Facilities Carlos Rellán told us all about their immense savings in time and costs: reducing one week to one day, and costs to 20 times less.

First production part of its kind to complement high-performance exotic vehicle - offers unparalleled quality, durability and luxury

3D Systems' Application Innovation Group is instrumental in the development of novel parts with the DMP Factory 500 3D printer.

With the desire to improve the circularity of large format additive manufacturing (LFAM), SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, and Local Motors, a next-generation vehicle manufacturer, completed a joint study on the feasibility of recycling scrap thermoplastic parts and shavings from the 3D printing process.

• New Accura® Composite PIV material enables more efficient part production, more accurate and higher resolution Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) testing data

• New material alongside 3D Systems’ technology and application expertise enabling Alpine F1 Team to continue to advance aerodynamic track performance

A novel cooling system in the ethec city electric motorcycle ensures a longer service life for the battery cells. In order to introduce the students to manufacturing processes that can be used for series production outside of prototype manufacturing, voxeljet produced the mold for the innovative battery housing of the prototype using the binder jetting process.

GENERA has joined Henkel's open materials platform to offer production-scale additive manufacturing solutions. The two companies are working together on their respective focus areas to enable a new level of production for the automotive and healthcare industries. By combining GENERA's expertise in 3D printing and software development with Henkel's innovative material development, the two companies aim to generate new applications for DLP printing in the automotive and other industries.

Not only for the production of optimized lightweight housings for electric motors, the British company Brooks Crownhill Limited (BCP) relies on 3D printing systems from voxeljet. For a lot of automotive parts, BCP counts on prototypes produced using 3D sand printing well before they are ready for series production. The advantage: the ability to design highly complex parts without having to keep expensive tools on hand. Plus, with the right approach completely new designs emerge, as additive manufacturing offers unique design possibilities. The reason for this is that additive manufacturing allows end users to thoroughly inspect and extensively test the newly designed components before the production tools are manufactured. This saves a massive amount of time and money.
