Video: 3D-Printed Car, Mark II
In six weeks, Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility 3D printed a working Shelby Cobra for the Detroit Auto Show. This facility will be on of the locations for an Additive Manufacturing Conference debuting in October.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory produced this video of the world’s second 3D-printed car. The first 3D-printed car was made at IMTS. The second, in the words of Oak Ridge’s Dr. Lonnie Love in this video, does not “look like a printed vehicle,” but instead, “looks like a real car.”
Specifically, it is a working 3D-printed Shelby Cobra, made for the recent Detroit Auto Show. (This video was filmed prior to that show.)
One of the missions of the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility at Oak Ridge (the facility seen in this video) is to help American manufacturers adopt additive manufacturing. In October, this facility will be one of the locations for a two-day, in-depth Additive Manufacturing Conference organized by Additive Manufacturing and Modern Machine Shop.
