Recently, 3D Printing has become a game-changer in the automotive industry. With 3D Automotive Printing, there is a large portfolio of engineering grade plastics, large build envelopes, and a variety of resolution options that make it possible to FDM 3D print every part of an automobile. Bumpers, dashboards, consoles, seats, headlight assemblies, and more are no problem for the Stratasys Fortus 3D printers run by the skilled technicians at ProTek Models.
Our experienced team can print parts for prototypes and production parts intended for permanent use on race cars, road cars, trucks, and other automobiles. High-performance materials like Ultem 1010, Ultem 9085, and Nylon 12CF even make it possible to print production engine parts including engine manifolds and intercoolers used for dyno testing and low volume production applications. Low volume production FDM 3D printed bumpers, splitters, spoilers, diffusers, dashboards, consoles, and most other car parts can also be produced in a variety of high-performance engineering plastics.
With the skilled team at ProTek Models, there is no automotive part or model that we can’t handle.
We go above and beyond with our 3D Automotive Printing. FDM 3D printed parts requiring watertight qualities are epoxy sealed twice by skilled ProTek Models technicians. This not only makes the parts watertight but further increases the strength of the parts. 3D printed parts can also be sanded, painted, textured, upholstered, chrome-plated, etc., depending on your specifications. All of these services and more are offered by ProTek Models, making us truly a one-stop-shop for all your FDM 3D Automotive Printing needs.
When it comes to 3D Printing in the automotive industry, there are many applications. These include:
Automotive 3D Printing offers numerous benefits. With Automotive FDM 3D Printing, you can avoid expensive and long lead-time CNC production. 3D automotive printing is cheaper than CNC production and production is much shorter, especially when utilizing ProTek Models for your Automotive 3D Printing needs. Another production benefit of Automotive 3D Printing is that it creates less waste and allows for lower material consumption throughout the manufacturing process.
In addition to production benefits, 3D printing also allows designers the ability to try multiple options and iterations when creating new parts or models. With increased flexibility, auto manufacturers can create efficient designs quickly and affordably. This not only improves overall performance, but it can also provide a competitive advantage over the competition.
