    Just read article on a 3D printed car. They are moving closer to reality with prototypes springing up. One day you’ll be able to go a dealer and he’ll print out the car you order.

    The one prototype supercar looks really cool.
    And with the hopes of only weighing 1400 lbs. and 700 hp it sounds even cooler. I just don’t know that I’m that crazy about the thought of a 3d printed car.

    That’s pretty wild! I’ve heard of some prototype 3D printed houses being built as well.

    It is just the natural progression of things. What this will do is allow a lot of small manufacturers into the business. Right now there are a lot of good ideas but no money to put them into production. 3D printing will allow that. Cars, houses they are all coming. What remains to be seen is what the quality will be.

    I think that I would have some concerns about a 1400lb car with 700hp being able to stick to the road.

    Cool! Second gen car looks so much better than the first.

    Another thing which a 3D printer may be good at would be making small interior parts which aren’t made anymore for older cars.

    probably cost less to print it then to forge it.

    Restorers are already using the “small” and “medium” size one to make unavailable parts. Go to youtube and Jay Leno has a video on how he used a 3D printer to make a mold for an available part that took hours instead of days and was a lot cheaper than making a mold from scratch.

    I wouldn’t think cost was an issue with Jay Leno 🙂 He has quite the collection of cars and bikes.

    I think he’d love the gadget factor with one of those, eventually he’ll just get to building unique cars. Im surprised he isn’t at that point yet, with this collection.

    Thanks for the video, John.
    Amazing what can be made on a 3D printer. Even more amazing that the body of the guitar was printed in one shot, no assembly required for all the moving components.

    You could make a fortune if you could produce these guitars cheap enough . They have a cool design to them .

    I don’t know if this is really possible. it’s extremely hard to print moving parts without any assembly. Especially for something this complex, if it was though, then this is pretty damn amazing. I’d like to see the process of if being made.

    I have always said that one day we will be printing homes. here is a pen that has ink that conducts electricity. One step Closer.

    That electric pen is amazing, ThanX for posting the link. I have not seen or heard about that one.

    Agreed, it would be neat to see the full process of making this guitar.

    So how big are the 3D printers that can make a car?

    Pretty massive, at least a little bit bigger than the car for sure.
