Autology: The blueprint - How 3D printing will be used in cars

07 July 2021 28:15 mins Edwin Pope

As OEMs increasingly explore three-dimensional printing for vehicle components, IHS Markit experts ask whether or not the technology is likely to go mainstream.

The technology is particularly on a growth trend as a result of the move towards electrified vehicles, as the weight from batteries needs to be countered by lightweighting techniques in other areas of the car.

And if 3D printing does indeed become economically viable for OEMs, does that put some suppliers at risk as parts become increasingly vertically integrated by carmakers?

Could we also see a large proportion of light vehicles 3D printed in the distant future? All will be answered in this week’s episode of Autology.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on this episode at our email, and you can find out much more across the website.
