3D Printing

This section is covers how I am using 3D printing technology in the build of this car. This technology enables the fabrication of quality, custom components for the identified applications in this car. The whole design and print process is perfect for low volume car manufacture like this and I've already started using this technology.

Design

I'm currently using Google Sketchup to design the parts on this car.

Completed Parts

T.B.C.

Planned Parts

3D printing looks to be applicable to quite a few small parts on my next car. These are the parts currently planned.

Print Process

MakerWare

Printer

I'm currently printing parts on a MakerBot Replicator 2.

I do plan to buy a 3D printer at some point, for this and other projects. My favoourite is currently the CEL Robox.
