This Futuristic City Car Will Be Made With 3D Printing

This Futuristic City Car Will Be Made With 3D Printing | Made Different | Scoop.it

Meet the Urbee 2.

Engineer Jim Kor wants to make a car that is efficient, affordable, simple, and safe, and that can be easily produced in small or large numbers.

And he's doing it with 3D printing.

The car he's developed is the Urbee 2, a two-seat, three-wheel hybrid.

Thanks to its big windows and teardrop shape (which gives it an excellent coefficient of drag), it looks like a vehicle out of "Minority Report."

"Printing" the Urbee 2 (which takes about 2,500 hours, according to Wired) makes it lighter, and not only because it is made of ABS plastic (except the engine and base chassis, which are metal).

Objet 3D Printers Create A Functioning Keyboard In One Print Job

Objet 3D Printers Create A Functioning Keyboard In One Print Job | Made Different | Scoop.it

We’ve already seen what Objet’s multi-material 3D printers can do, but it’s always nice to see Objet pushing the boundaries of what its Connex printers can accomplish.

In today’s demonstration, the Objet Connex 3D printer has created a keyboard replica. The amazing part about this particular print job is that the keys didn’t have to be printed separately and inserted into the keyboard. Everything was created in a single print, further demonstrating the power of Objet’s Connex line of 3D printers.

Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind for which exclusive rights are granted. The principal categories of IP are patents, trademarks, and copyrights. With respect to 3D printing, there are many interesting and unsettled questions about how current IP laws will be applied to this developing technology.
