How does the Automotive Industry use Additive Manufacturing?

Learn about the five ways 3D Printing is transforming the Automotive Industry.

In the span of a decade, 3D printers have moved from an optional piece of equipment for producing relatively simple prototypes to an absolute necessity — one that is transforming the automotive industry in fundamental ways. Now fixtures in automotive design studios, factory assembly lines and test tracks, 3D printers are creating complex parts, speeding up tooling cycles, enhancing measurement and testing, and providing customization solutions across all aspects of the vehicle development process.
