【六天太短?不!足够3D打印一辆车】

【六天时间能干什么?3D打印一辆车】本周芝加哥国家制造技术展览会(IMTS)上,Local Motors依靠大面积增材制造机器(BAAM),已惊人的速度在仅仅六天内成功3D打印并且组装完成一辆汽车。当然并不是所有的零件都是3D打印出的,例如电池、发动机这些目前也无法3D打印出来。该车仅仅只由40个部分组成,而传统的汽车需要20000多个。

You can probably get quite a bit done by yourself in six days time, but could you build an entire car from scratch and take it for a test drive? Probably not. The folks at Local Motorsare pretty confident that their 3D-printed car can roll out of Chicago"s McCormick Place and go for a spin this Sunday, though. Printing started a few days ago at the International Manufacturing Technology Show in The Windy City, using carbon-reinforced plastic and a Big Area Additive Manufacturing printer, according to 3DPrint. Not everything on the car can be 3D printed mind you, that"d just be crazy. The Strati still needs a battery, engine, wiring and suspension, which, as IGN notes, will be sourced from a handful of suppliers rather than being manufactured onsite. If all goes according to plan, Local Motors hopes to offer "production-level" 3D printed vehicles in the coming months. It isn"t an Aston Martin, to be sure, but aside from a DB4, what is?

Really starting to look like a #car... #3DPrintedCar #epic #IMTS2014 #stratipic.twitter.com/1aiA9vqMI9
