BMW, an HP ecosystem partner, intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. The company’s plans to expand the role of 3D printing in series manufacturing are based on expectations of much faster production speeds from newer planar additive technologies. These include HP’s Multi-Jet Fusion, which will be used for the first time in car manufacturing by BMW, as well as Carbon’s CLIP (Continuous Liquid Interface Production) method.
It may be news to some that the carmaker has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom. BMW, an early adopter of AM in cars, says it’s been using 3D-printed components for end production parts since 2012 in the Rolls-Royce Phantom
