The 3D Printed Car (a.k.a. Direct Digital Manufacturing)

Currently, producing a new car from a new design represents either a significant investment in tooling, or a large commitment in time for someone to produce a design free form if the tooling does not exist. In addition the need for all that production tooling is the result of just how many parts are required to produce the structure of a car. Just to create the cabin of a car, there are exterior body panels, trim, internal structure for rigidity, interior panels, dash covers… even the seats themselves contribute to a seriously overblown Bill of Materials.

The vehicle is the first of its kind, having both its body and chassis 3D-printed together.

Unlike other cars being manufactured today, Strati is  cost- and time-efficient vehicle to produce.

It takes only about 44 hours for the car to be printed and it is made of ABS plastic reinforced with carbon fiber. There are also only about 50 parts that make up the car, as opposed to thousands that are used to build cars today.

Strati is said to cost only about $18,000 when it is released in 2016 and bound to revolutionize the way future cars are made.
