This 3D-printed RC car can go 100 mph

With his sights set on the world record, this Maker created a 3D-printed, remote-controlled car that can go over 100 mph. Like most of us, James Beswick has a hobby. That interest pertains to the building and racing of remote-controlled cars. But we’re not talking about just any RC vehicle. In fact, the British Maker has designed and 3D-printed one that’s […]

Design, build and race your own 3D-printed cars with Cannybots

The next generation of toys is here! Cannybots can be assembled like LEGO and programmed from your mobile device. Since their inception back in the 1950s, Matchbox cars have become an iconic accessory that can be found atop any child’s holiday wish list and in just about every playroom. However, in this day and age, kids are overexposed to the latest and greatest smart devices, which […]

Local Motors plans to begin selling 3D-printed cars next year

Local Motors will be releasing two models of the ReLoad Redacted car in Q1 2016 at a price tag of $18,000 to $30,000.  If it’s up to Local Motors, not only will the vehicles of tomorrow be autonomous, they’re going to be 3D-printed as well. That’s because the Phoenix-based company, who introduced the first 3D-printed automobile (the Strati) back in September […]

Check out the world’s first 3D-printed supercar

What can you make with a 3D printer, some aluminum powder and carbon fiber tubing? If you’re Kevin Czinger, a brand new sports car with a 3D-printed chassis. During the O’Reilly Solid Conference, Divergent Microfactories unveiled a disruptive new approach to auto manufacturing that incorporates 3D printing to dramatically reduce the pollution, materials and capital costs associated with building automobiles and other large complex structures. […]

China’s first 3D-printed car hits the road

A Chinese company has just completed a 3D-printed car for $1,770. Hot off the heels of Local Motors, Sanya Sihai has created China’s first 3D-printed car: a bright orange electric-powered sedan. If you recall, the Chinese company previously developed the world’s first fully-functional boat last August, a two-meter long vessel capable of accommodating two passengers. The road-ready vehicle took a month and […]

Scout is a 3D-printable, Flutter-based RC car

This remote control car is screwless, wireless, and full of awesomeness.  Certainly not new to the Maker Movement, Taylor Alexander has spent a life of hacking and transfiguring electronics. At the early age of five, he would break objects down and rebuild them as something entirely different. This included taking parts from old cameras and stereos, then transforming them into electric cars. Born out of his own frustration as to how difficult it […]

Students in Singapore just 3D-printed a pair of solar electric cars

Students from the Nanyang Technological University have unveiled Singapore’s first solar electric car with a 3D-printed frame. Young Makers from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) have made history by building a pair of 3D-printed solar electric cars, a first of their kind in Singapore. These efforts follow in the footsteps of the latest advancements by companies like Local Motors in offering a glimpse […]

3D-printed cars shine at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show

3D printing is allowing carmakers to go from concept to completion in just days. According to latest reports, the use of 3D printing in the auto industry is expected to quintuple over the next five years to a value north of $1.25 billion, up from just $267 million today. This comes after history was made last year when the world’s first 3D-printed car drove out […]

Print my ride! Your next car will be 3D-printed in less than two days

History was made when the world’s first 3D-printed car drove out of Chicago’s McCormick Place during the 2014 International Manufacturing Technology Show back in September. The vehicle components took 44 hours to print, and after a swift assembly, the vehicle named “Strati” headed off the showroom floor. The brainchild of Local Motors, Stratri was produced in one piece using direct digital manufacturing (DDM), […]
