LM3D Swim at SEMA
With the wave in car technology on the up and driverless cars the current talking topic, road legal 3D printed cars are also to watch for competition.
Local Motors have unveiled their new 3D printed design the LM3D Swim at this year’s SEMA in Las Vegas, deemed to be fully sustainable and ready to drive on the roads amongst us.
Creating the world’s first 3D-printed vehicle, the Strati, last year, Local Motors have been working on extensive testing throughout 2015 to crack the secret to manufacturing cars made entirely out of printed parts.
CEO of Local Motors, Jay Rogers, stated: “In the past few months our engineers have moved from only a rendering to the car you see in front of you today. We are using the power of DDM to create new vehicles at a pace unparalleled in the auto industry, and we’re thrilled to begin taking orders on 3D-printed cars next year.”
Describes as economical and safe for humans and roads, the idea of a vehicle assembled by printed parts is still one to come to terms with, but not specifically expensive.
Local Motors are also planning on launching a series of apps and products for the printed car to optimise and extend the drivers experience. The LM3D Swim is expected to go on sale in the spring of 2016 for a price of $53,000 with the manufacturing and delivery of the vehicle expected in 2017.
