Larger parts seem to be the trend for metal 3D printing lately. Maybe not yet mass produced large parts but certainly some big one-offs for custom luxury and racing cars.
Leveraging the expertise and AM capabilities at AM and engineering services provider MIMO Technick , the Papadakis Racing team built an impressively large 3D printed turbo manifold for it latest racing vehicle. The video shows off the entire process, from engine 3D scanning to part design, all the way to 3D printing, finishing and assembling the manifold’s components. The printing was carried out by MIMO Technik, a California metal AM and engineering services provider that operates in the AM space for aerospace, rocketry, defense and motorsport clients. Perhaps even more interesting for the readers of this website is that MIMO Technik is not just supporting highly advanced, one-off motorsport projects but also producing some serious series of serial advanced […]
Having successfully integrated 3D printing into its production process in its Barcelona factory, Nissan now has the...
