Stratasys and HP have teamed up to relase the world’s first 3D-printed car, Urbee.
Dripping each layer of material bit by bit in the additive manufacturing process, the Urbee is a two-seat car made by 3D printing guys Stratasys and engineering company Kor Ecologic. All of the body parts were made using 3D printers, including the glass panels.
One day it’ll hopefully be put on the production line and do its bit for the environment, if Kor Ecologic follows through on its hybrid promise. For now though, it runs on gasoline and ethanol (getting up to 200 miles to the gallon). The design is pretty sleek and space-age like, and can be seen at Las Vegas’ SEMA Show this week.
