Kart Chassis from a 3D Printer

Using Materialise's Mammoth 3D printers it is possible to manufacture parts of up to 7 x 2.2 x 2.6 feet. With a build envelope that massive, the Formula Group T team recognized the possibility to not only print the entire body of the car, but to also integrate some unique features directly into the design. The most stunning achievement is the time frame it took to great the cars body. From initial shell design to a fully finished 3D Printed car body, it took just three weeks. Something that other race cars might take months or even years. Obviously, every single part of the car is not made in a 3D printer (that is impossible... for now), but many of the main components are.
