With the industry of 3D printing literally soaring to astronomical heights, it was only a matter of time before some clever engineer used the technology to print an automobile. Though some chose to manufacture a family-worthy coupe, CEO ofDivergent Microfactories Kevin Czinger decided to up the ante and 3D-printed the world’s first supercar. Faster and lighter than a Ferrari, Czinger’s project (dubbed the Blade) aims to revolutionize the auto industry by introducing an innovative new approach to manufacturing cars. From the looks (and sounds) of the Blade, it seems Czinger knows what he’s talking about.
In a recent press release, Divervent described the process of creating Blade as a “disruptive new approach to auto manufacturing”. By making use of 3D printing technology to produce the vehicle, the company expects a massive decrease in pollution, along with the costs typically associated with building automobiles and large, complex structures.
