3D Printed Cars & Intelligent Manufacturing: Divergent Excites at AMUG

Our recent trip to AMUG (the Additive Manufacturing Users Group) Conference in Chicago this month had us excited about the possibilities of 3D printing. Kevin Czinger, founder, lead inventor, and CEO of Divergent 3D was the keynote speaker and shared how the company has successfully manufactured a largely 3D printed vehicle with excellent performance characteristics.

While the current model is very expensive, (>$2 million), they have plans to introduce production models for about $200,000. The kicker is that this is all produced on in an entirely flexible factory with zero fixed tooling and non-dedicated Capex.

This is a game-changer. First rockets, now cars.
