Caterham Driving Car Design with 3D Printing

(Financial Times) Caterham engineers at an Oxfordshire factory in the UK have been hard at work using 3D printing to model designs for the optimal car for race day. “We’re making between 800 and 900 parts a month this way,” says Ian Prince, rapid prototyping manager at Caterham, the Malaysian-owned F1 team based in the UK. Caterham bought two 3D printing machines last year to speed up and reduce the cost of its design process. Prince says it is saving the company as much as 40,000 pounds each month. “For an F1 team, because it is constant development all year round, we need these machines to improve the performance of the car,” explains Mr Prince. Body parts are designed and printed to a 60 percent scale and are then tested in Caterham’s wind tunnel.
