Britain Launches First 3D Printed Car At 72 Kilometers Per Hour

Oct 26, 2020

Recently, a British 3D printing company Scaled Ltd launched a 3D printed electric four-wheeled car "Chameleon (Chameleon)", which can reach a speed of 45 mph (72 km/h), which is known as the first 3D printed electric car in Europe.

The Chameleon project was launched by Scaled during the epidemic to show how to use 3D printing technology to design and manufacture a fully drivable car within a few months.


This single-person electric car named "Chameleon" weighs 150 kilograms. In order to ensure that the vehicle can withstand sufficient load during driving, the designer used PA6 (nylon) 3D printing material.

The PA6 3D printing material provided by Lehvoss Group ensures that the vehicle can withstand sufficient load during driving.


In fact, 3D printed cars have appeared in many countries and regions.

Olli was first launched in 2016 as a self-driving shuttle that can carry up to 12 passengers and can be 3D printed on demand. According to reports, using Cincinnati's BAAM printer and IBM Watson IoT platform, this automated vehicle can be manufactured within 10 hours.

Chevrolet 3D printed racing car participated in this year's racing competition. This racing car is equipped with 75 3D printed parts, including fuel tank, fuel tank inlet and cover, air conditioning drive cooling box, integrated hydration system, power steering pump bracket and headlight assembly, etc. , To date more than 80,000 miles.


3D printing technology has played an important role in vehicle development and production. Many well-known vehicle manufacturers have incorporated 3D printing technology into their future development plans. Perhaps one day, car lovers will find that every one of their cars is inextricably linked to 3D printing.
