3D Printed Cars - the ultimate status symbol

a car tailored like a fine suit

Being able to dream up of the type of car you would like, and not just need, is a wonderful prospect for many people who drive at some point or another. Something that reflects your particular lifestyle and sensibilities on the road seems like a futuristic notion, like being able to program and design your own robotic butler to help you out around the house. It is something that seems pretty obvious, after all we like to decide how to decorate our house and what we like wear because a big part of life is being able to make it our own. 

With large format 3D printing services, custom interior automotive design can be an immersive and, above all, more personalized affair than we have become accustomed to. You can watch a lighting fixture that’s meant to go inside your car, that you had direct input into, materialize before your very eyes. This is a much different feeling than just selecting something from out of a catalog. If you wish, you could also have a say into the design and dimensions of the seat as well. If you would like it to lean heavy on a race car style. you can opt for a satisfying combination that extends to things like the console, door and so much more. 

It’s a pretty interesting feeling when you step into a vehicle and you feel as though you’re being welcomed into someone else’s life. An endearing experience that makes life more personalized and especially thought-provoking, instead of the all-too-familiar feeling of something lacking in a part of our lives in which we spent countless hours.

Streaming shows on TV are so popular and inspiring precisely because they enable the viewer to see the the shows he/she wants, from beginning to end. Similarly, with custom car design, the buyer can come up with an idea. After getting to know the needs of buyer, the process of designing a unique custom car is a combination of art and engineering. It speaks to us as individuals, who we are and what means the most to us in a very special and personal sense. We’re all different, however, oftentimes we aren’t able to call the shots of how we would like our lives from within our cars to feel, but now thanks to 3D tech if we can picture it and we have plenty of money, we can most likely realize it.

stuck in traffic for 4.3 years? might as well be comfortable

Generally speaking for the majority of the history most automobile brands are quite the same, which is a bit odd when one considers how different we all are. Sure we all work, but the way approach said work is different, and this is a wonderful place to start when thinking about the aesthetic elements we would like to incorporate into our automotive lives. After all, it is said that the average person spends 4.3 years of their life driving. It isn’t hard to imagine that the car companies that will succeed in the future are those that will best cater to people’s unique needs. Surely the market will evolve along these lines and it stands to reason because we spend so much of our days in our cars that they begin to resemble us to varying degrees. The more companies that through exacting manufacturing processes like 3D printing can deliver to this end, the less likely it will be that they’re edged out by those who stick to a more uniformed model.

Large part 3D printing services can have a lot to say about how we see life itself, since it’s seen by the most affluent in society as a status symbol. However, the options as they’re called aren’t too reflective of the individuals, and their achievements and more personally, their interests in the day-to-day. For the elite it is a way of standing out from the resto f he world. When cars began to be commonplace, this was made crystal clear by society in general. When Ford introduced the model T, and for the subsequent years, American life was transformed. This extended to the attitudes that people carried with them in public. The ideas of class, behavior and so much more changed rapidly and especially affected style, even fashion began to resemble cars

Now,
we may be able to choose this familiar
environment in a variety of new ways and forms thanks to the transformative
nature of 3D printing large parts. The
p
recise measurements that
it can accomplish
are what make it possible for something like turning your car into a party zone, but
also to make your front seat feel like a living room
. And there’s no better way to achieve
this level of personalization
than by planning things out digitally
before even the very first layer is deposited on a custom component. Interiors are
a very tricky business as more
often than not it is a difficult business when you have to fix, or make adjustments, on the fly. You can also save on all kinds
of costs when things like c
omplex geometries are being carried out with greater
confidence as you can see what it will look like in all the applicable dimensions before
committing to anything.

large part 3d printing - not just for vanity, it has a good business case

It’s also proving to be a real time saver as companies like Ai Design are finding out. For them, it makes a lot of economical sense as with one-off parts it has managed to reduce costs for up to 40%. Hand work and CNC machining that was used to create custom jobs like those that necessitate individualized interiors used to take them hours upon endless hours to complete. So they turned to Stratasys’ Redeye division, as well established 3D printing company that became the first to 3D print a full car, they were able to use a process of Fused Deposition Modeling to print out all sorts of products using thermoplastics.

Consumers are quite happy with the results, most of all with specialized designs for electronics, for instance, different docks to place devices like tablets and phones. As a matter of fact you can have them integrated into the car’s own computer. You can even decide on extremely unique speaker systems with different panel set ups that can even be designed to cater to specific genres of music. Door mounted speaker grills are a prime example of when computer aided design (CAD) serves as a heads over shoulders design avenue, which Todd Henderson, director of marketing and sales at Air Design, says “would have been nearly impossible to make using any other methods due to intolerance.” Electronic components don’t just benefit from 3D printing from a practical stand point, but from an aesthetically pleasing one as well. Theres a certain appreciation for the harmonic appearance to compliment everything else.

Companies like Ai Design thrive on people’s capacity to dream up what they want, as opposed to just picking something out. In the future, the personalized approach is sure to be the prevailing way to appeal to a car buying public thanks to 3D tech. It is just a mannered of time before purchasing and commissioning a  tailored car becomes the norm. We as a human race like to express ourselves, and where better than where we spend a significant portion of our lives, on average an hour and a half. As people who have our own ideas of taste it`s a great idea to be settled within our own sense of style and form.
