World's First 'Printed' Car

World's First 'Printed' Car

The Urbee is the world's first 'printed' car. The ultra-thin composite material from which the vehicle's body is made was built up and fused together using a special printer in a process called 'additive layer manufacturing'. According to project leader Jim Kor, the novel 3D printing process "only puts material where one needs it... building the part essentially one 'molecule' of material at a time, ultimately with no waste." The car is said to last 30 years, and its hybrid engine is rated at 200MPG on the highway. More at Mail Online.
