Top Interesting 3D-Printed Vehicles for Real-World Use in 2021

Global Tech Outlook explores some of the top interesting 3D-printed vehicles for real-world use

3D printing in vehicles has provided an extra advantage to the automotive industry in these recent years. 3D printed vehicles incorporate major disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence, computer vision, and many more to offer eco-friendly and light-weighted cars to consumers or other industries across the world. It is not available in the global tech-driven market but certain tech companies are focused on launching 3D-printed vehicles as soon as possible in the nearby future. The global 3D-printed vehicles market is expected to hit US$12.4 billion in 2028. Let’s explore some of the top 3D-printed vehicles with the real-world use of these 3D vehicles.

At first, let’s take a glance at the reasons why the automotive industry is leveraging 3D printing for vehicles— requirements of less material, cost-efficient, faster prototyping and feedback, saves masses of spaces, and designs single part as well as multiple parts that are strong and light-weighted.

 

Top Interesting 3D-Printed Vehicles for Real-World Use in 2021

 

Blade 3D Printed Supercar

Divergent3D is focused on transforming the automobile industry with 3D printing. Thus, it has launched 3D-printed vehicles— supercars with a top speed of 200 mph with a weight of around 619 kg. The company has developed the Blade 3D printed supercar that is equipped with 629 horsepower. It is still not available in the market but the images of this car are unbelievable and this model is ready for the release of the first 3D printed supercar in the world.

 

Nanyang Venture 8

Nanyang Venture 8 has manufactured one of the top 3D-printed vehicles for real-world use. A group of students from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore built this 3D-printed vehicle with more than 150 3D-printed parts. They have used 3Dprinting in vehicles with an FDM 3D printer— shells, grills, door latches, and so on. These 3D-printed vehicles will reach a speed of 37 mph and were showcased in the Shell Eco-Marathon Asia.

 

Strati

Local Motors has claimed to release the first electric and one of the top 3D-printed vehicles in 2021 for daily life uses. The real-world use of 3D vehicles can be implemented with a speed of 40mph within 100-200 miles. This eco-friendly car is known as Strati that has the thermoplastic from the FDM 3D printer.

 

The LSEV

A collaboration between a design firm in Hong Kong, XEV, and a Chinese 3D printing company known as Polymaker has created the LSEV, one of the top interesting 3D-printed vehicles for real-world use of 3D vehicles. The interior and exterior are made of 3D printing except for tires, seats and windows. It weighs only 450 kg and can cover 90 miles with 43 mph speed.

 

Elvis’s BMW 507

A BMW 507 belonged to Elvis Presley, the kind of Rock’n’Roll. But when it was found it was not in a good shape to restore properly. Thus, 3D printing in vehicles has made it possible for restoration by reiterating all the original component designs into CAD models. There are multiple parts that are made of 3D printing for the real-world use of 3D vehicles.
