So we can print 3-D Objects the size of a car (With some work), so how long untill I get my Omni-tool?
(Someone post a ME1-3 pic so people know what I'm on about? Please and thanks)

mould parts.

you still need to make the body from the moulds then make a chassis and everything else.
User avatar #55 to #44 - continuo (08/03/2013) [-]
One of the main points about a 3d printer is it does not need a mold,just a file telling it what to make and a material to make it with.
#57 to #55 - DangerToManifold (08/03/2013) [-]
what relevance does that have to what i just posted? he is printing parts with which he will later use as molds to make a fiberglass shell.
User avatar #58 to #57 - continuo (08/03/2013) [-]
3D printers can print with materials other than plastic too,its perfectly viable to make a car with it.Also i misunderstood and thought you meant using a mould for the printing and not using the printed obect as a mould.sorry for the confusion.
User avatar #42 - oceanmist (08/02/2013) [-]
Ya know I do see this happening eventually, companies that mass produce chassis with engines, brakes, suspension. You pick one, then you can pay to use a prebuilt body design to have printed on top of it, or design your own.

I might be a little low on the uptake of this but I just realised that 3d printers could be used to buy things off the Internet and receive them as soon as they've done cooking in the next room
#29 to #28 - angelusprimus (08/02/2013) [-]
If it really kicks off it has a potential of completely changing the economy.
manufacturing industry would go a way of the dodo.

it's a kit car
it's going to be *****
#31 to #25 - angelusprimus (08/02/2013) [-]
Not necessarily.
See for example you get all the original parts for a car, but its not assembled. Would you call it a **** car if you assemble it yourself, assuming you know what you are doing?
Ok now with 3-d printing you can print out EXACT copies of the original parts, if you have access to exact measurements in something like autoCAD.
If you have exact copy of the parts, and you assemble it exactly, why would it be **** ?
User avatar #40 to #31 - tehlulzbringer ONLINE (08/02/2013) [-]
when he's done with it and it turns out to be anything but utter ***** , then we'll talk
User avatar #33 to #31 - silvanyis (08/02/2013) [-]
The material it's printed in.
#34 to #33 - angelusprimus (08/02/2013) [-]
That depends on the printer.
sPro 125 for example can print a wide range of metals, including aluminum, steel, titanium.
Arguably you could use better materials then the original builder and still pay less, because you don't have to calculate in research and development and design costs, nor labor.
User avatar #36 to #34 - silvanyis (08/02/2013) [-]
But aren't those designs built with the available material at hand? A frame might not be as light weight or durable if you print it out of a material it wasn't designed for. And it most likely won't be weather-proofed but if you're going to print a car, might as well get it weather-proofed and insured. The problem, I think, would come from more the engine than anything. Of course, engines cost a great deal less than most fully manufactured vehicles, so again you are saving yourself money.
#37 to #36 - angelusprimus (08/02/2013) [-]
Well, this guy's car, I think will be more like a visual replica over another car chasis.
but as prices of professional printers go down you COULD print entire car with original or very close to original materials.
Though I do agree it would probablly be better to buy engine and brakes, those you want able to handle extremely high stress.

i really don't understand how 3d printers work
#30 to #24 - angelusprimus (08/02/2013) [-]
Its fairly simple.
To print something out it has to have a 3 d model in the computer, so for example in autoCAD you make a figurine of yourself with conan muscles. then you send it to the printer.
Printer has a set of plastic (or metal) dust patrons, instead of ink. That dust gets heated and turned into liquid which is then layer by layer put on a surface untill it looks exactly like the model in the computer. Each layer cools before next one is put so it doesn't get misshapen.
#7 - TimeWarpRaped (08/02/2013) [-]
My question may sound dumb, but is there any chance of this working? The engine would have to actually work, and all the other components too. If he could buy an engine for it instead of printing would it work?
User avatar #26 to #7 - tacolishous (08/02/2013) [-]
They've actually done it.

If you notice, the article was written in September 2011.
User avatar #20 to #7 - arcticassassin (08/02/2013) [-]
I'm assuming there are some components that can not be printed due to lack of heat resistance or mobility.
However, the frame would definitely work.
User avatar #10 to #7 - moribus (08/02/2013) [-]
You can print the engine, but i would crash/brake.

You can print body of a car only, like a decoration around old cars axis/angine and stuff.
User avatar #56 to #10 - continuo (08/03/2013) [-]
They are starting to print biological matter so im sure larger scale metal structures aren't too much of a push.
#35 to #10 - angelusprimus (08/02/2013) [-]
well you COULD, but printer that can do that would cost more then a ferrari

Gotcha, that's what I figured. Thanks.

There is a 4TB drive that costs €150.

635/4= 159 x 4 TB HDDs

159x150 = €23.850 (excluding power supplies)

All you need is a LOT of money and power supplies,
#41 to #27 - hemming (08/02/2013) [-]
**** , with that kind of money i could just buy a car instead.. **** i could get two cars if they are used
User avatar #53 to #41 - JariWeis (08/02/2013) [-]
You could get 3 luxury edition Audi A4's, maybe 4.

You could also get 10-11 Gaming PC's or 7-8 Gaming RIGs (including monitor, mouse, keyboard and headset)
User avatar #54 to #53 - hemming (08/02/2013) [-]
Not in my country, i could get 2 Toyota Aygos with insurance maybe..

funny story that.

/b saw this picture and everybody was like "Hurr, i would if i could"
Then some magnificent phanact said "Hey, hows bout we make a file... put ALL of the **** on it, the upload it?"

As such, this file was born! Filled to the brim with child porn, ****** , gay, gore, everything you can imagine.

The more you know. Now I must seek out this magical torrent

It's ok. Just delete some of the porn and it will fit.

best part about 3D printing is that auto companies (Jag, Chevy, Ford, etc) could market blueprints so you could build yourself cars that went out of production years ago. I'm hoping I can make myself a 50s El Dorado.
User avatar #12 to #1 - JoshOwnsAll ONLINE (08/02/2013) [-]
I would make a '71 Oldsmobile 442.
User avatar #6 to #1 - dafiltafish (08/02/2013) [-]
I would make a 91 miata modified to fit a ford small block.

No engine I have to then try and get rid of.
#3 to #1 - taurusguy (08/02/2013) [-]
And then 3D printing becomes so good that you cant make a difference between the original and printed, so the cars start to lose value.
User avatar #8 to #3 - thecakeislegit (08/02/2013) [-]
>VIN numbers
#13 to #8 - taurusguy (08/02/2013) [-]
Still, would be more of the classic non produced cars on the street reducing their value
