3-D Printed Car to be “Printed” at IMTS

Local Motors has picked a final design among the more than 200 concepts submitted in its challenge to define a vehicle to be built at IMTS 2014, with extensive use of additive manufacturing technologies.

The winning concept vehicle, called “Strati,” was created by Michele Anoé and will be the most significant influence on the full-size 3D printed prototype.

“It’s simple and clean, with character,” according to MakerBot CEO Bre Pettis, one of the judges. “It has a nice style that really hangs together.”

Take a look at more of the concepts submitted on American Machinist, an IndustryWeek companion site within Penton’s Manufacturing & Supply Chain Group.
