  • Body Interior Trim / Panels

    Optimize your cabin’s physical, functional, and visual experience. Without requiring expensive tooling, our additive manufacturing solutions allow you to create better concept car prototypes. You can make these with realistic texture and surface finishes that can be printed, plated, painted, and wrapped directly. Additionally, you can create innovations such as fastening systems and integrated latching to provide new design methods for manufacturing and service.

  • 3D Printed Automotive Body Panel SLA SLS
  • Body Exterior / Panel

    Our broad portfolio of durable materials enables you to produce rigid exterior panels for concept car components that don’t deform over large surfaces. This capability allows you to direct air where it’s needed, reduce drag, and ultimately maximize aerodynamic performance while maintaining precise control over Class A exterior style. Sensory mounts can also be added, giving you a unique and innovative way to collect additional analytics.

  • FormulaE
  • Metal Structural Components

    Create high-performance structural systems by leveraging an accurate and efficient 3D printing process, allowing you to produce lightweight parts and reduce inertia while increasing overall strength. Further enhance your manufacturing process with access to a wide range of metal alloys, enabling you to leverage efficient and effective post-processing and cleaning.
