Printed car at SEMA

November 4, 2010 § Leave a comment

Meet the Urbee, the world’s first ‘printed car’: its body is created using a 3D printing technique which could change the world of vehicle production. It has been built  using an additive process developed by Stratasys Inc., though the car itself is the work of Winnipeg-based product designers Kor Ecologic. The ultra-aerodynamic Urbee, an ethanol-compatible petrol-electric hybrid, is said to be good for over 250mpg (imperial) on the highway and 125mpg in the city, boosted by plug-in charging from a home socket, domestic windmill or solar panel. A prototype is on display at the SEMA show in Las Vegas this week (this pic’s a rendering, btw).
