3D printing technology is not exactly new. Some of this technological magic first appeared in the late 1980s and was referred to as Rapid Prototyping (PR) technologies. And since it's starts, 3D printing has come up with everything from inanimate objects to organs. Yet now, we can add spectacular automobiles to the list, too.
The world's first 3D printed supercar is now available. The prototype, named Blade, was designed and manufactured by Divergent Microfactories, a U.S. start-up company. It holds twice the power-to-weight ratio of a Bugatti Veyron, significantly less weight than 90 percent of cars at 1,400lbs and 30 percent of an electric car along with 1/50th the factory capital costs of other manufactured cars, the ability to go from 0-60 mph in just over two seconds and a 700hp engine that can use compressed natural gas or petrol, according to Science Recorder.To read more, click here.
