Hear the stories of engineers, teams, and businesses who are using 3D printing today and learn how you can incorporate this transformative technology into your automotive workflow.

Engineer icon

Gain Added Design Confidence and Reduce Risk

Empower engineers to make products that better meet customer requirements, with more iterations to refine concepts and tooling ahead of production. Integrate higher performing, more complex designs that you could not reasonably take before and continually innovate to ensure that you stay ahead of competitors.

Fast-Turn Manufacturing Tools and Aids

Constant improvement on the assembly line means quickly identifying an opportunity and acting on it. With a 3D printer by your side, you can work with the assembly technicians to design and produce tools to save time, reduce human strain, and increase line consistency. Create a digital library and print gauges, drill jigs, alignment fixtures, and ergonomic tools - all on-demand.

On-Vehicle Parts that Perform

Short custom car shops and racing teams (from karting to Formula 1) have a unique set of challenges. Designing and manufacturing low run parts or hard to find replacements can be daunting and expensive. 3D printing offers the ability to design, iterate, and manufacture individual parts in industrial materials with the push of a button.

How Top Automotive Professionals are Driving Innovation with METHOD

Dakar Rally

“METHOD is one of the most sophisticated units on the market, from the ease of connectivity––we can run all three of our printers from our laptop––to the advanced materials we were able to use––from ABS to nylon carbon fiber––to the heated build chamber that ensures print accuracy and repeatability every time."
