Individualize, integrate, innovate: The 3i-PRINT partnership project http://www.3i-print.com has used the front-end structure of a classic VW Caddy to demonstrate the full potential of industrial 3D printing within the automotive industry. The structure is very light, stable, and, at the same time, features a high degree of functional integration.
Altair, APWORKS, csi entwicklungstechnik, EOS, GERG, and Heraeus covered every development step of the process, from design, simulation, optimization and manufacturing to post production of the part. From conceptual design to final vehicle, the project was completed in only nine months. More information: http://www.3i-print.com
