Automotive Rapid Prototyping helps manufacturers to keep pace in the industry with 3D printing vivid colour, transparency, multi-materials and textures.
Electric cars, car sharing and self-driving cars have meant what’s under the hood is becoming less a consideration than how car interiors can and will be tailored to the changing needs and wants of consumers.
Automotive prototyping is expected to be a $5 billion industry by 2020. But growth comes with challenges, like navigating the changing face of interiors and lighting lens covers. Learn how to capitalize on 3D printing to:
- Innovate design
- Customize vehicle interiors and exteriors
- Iterate prototypes
- Stay ahead of the curve

Learn how automotive manufacturers and suppliers are rapid prototyping
Download our white paper to learn more about automotive 3D printing:
- Italdesign, a manufacturer that has produced rapid prototypes for Audi, Volkswagen, Lamborghini, Seat, Alfa-Romeo, Renault, Ford, and Fiat; are texturizing external parts, such as the mirrors, by 3D printing with carbon fiber.
- Luxury automaker, Audi, is currently developing taillight prototypes using the Stratasys J750, capitalizing on the 3D printer’s ability to print in vivid red, with seamless colour gradation integration and transparency, meaning the rear light prototypes are virtually indiscernible from the finished product.
- German luxury car manufacturer, BMW, uses 3D printing to build hand-tools for vehicle assembly and testing.
- Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) invested in 3D printing technology to broaden its resin-based rapid prototyping capabilities.
