Honestly, I don’t know very much about this technology yet, but it blows my mind that this is actually a reality.
The world’s first drivable 3D printed car was finished and driven off of the showroom floor at the International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago this past Saturday. The vehicle, produced by Local Motors, is called the Strati.
A team of engineers assembled the parts to make the car roadworthy from pieces printed out. The entire process took 44 hours, start to finish, and was done in front of a live crowd.
