3D printed bucket seat for Porsche. 3D printing helps in manufacturing parts to make desired shapes for Porsche. With the high purity metal powder using laser metal fusion process reducing the time. The honeycomb structure is making cars more soundproof inside.

As reported by Falk Heilfort, he is the project manager at the Porche powertrain advanced development department in Weissach,¨Lighter, more rigid, more compact: Porsche has produced its first complete housing for an electric drive using 3D printing. The engine-gearbox unit produced using the additive laser fusion process passed all the quality and stress tests without any problems. This proves that additive manufacturing with all its advantages is also suitable for larger and highly-stressed components in electric sports cars. It is conceivable that the optimized electric drive could be used in a limited-edition super sports car, for example.¨

    It was in our Sunday paper that ICON and their Vulcan II 3-D printer have delivered 24 of their 3-D houses to the U.S.
    Just thought I’d mention it.
