3D printed car - disruptive innovation for sustainability
By combining new technology with thinking outside the box it's possible to change even the most traditional industry.
Electric cars have been the latest trend within the car manufacturing industry but Divergent Microfactories lab is taking it one step further by creating a car with 3D printed key building blocks.
After having realized that the pollution generated from manufacturing vehicles is far worse than the fuel their focus is to reduce the material, energy use, pollution and cost of car manufacturing.
According to their homepage it took less than 30 minutes to assemble the chassis by hand and technology is strong enough to build safe cars.
New business seem to focus on sustainability from the very beginning which is a comforting trend.
