3D printing is no longer limited to small, desktop-sized scales. Large format 3D printing is now a viable option for industrial scale manufacturing, prototyping, and intensive R&D.Large format 3D printers can print strong, durable, and safe parts and products in one go. In the automotive industry, the technology is widely used for operations from the designer’s office to the factory floor.

‍Large format 3D printers have seen a lot of use in rapid prototyping in the automotive industry, just as in many other manufacturing sectors. Large format 3D printers can produce functioning prototypes in a single piece, without the cost of building casts and molds that may only be used once. This is helping car manufacturers to achieve better designs faster, by enabling repeat iterations before the design ever sees the factory line.
Many big car manufacturers are also bringing large format 3D printing onto their production lines. Ford Motors, for example, recently launched the Advanced Manufacturing Center. The company has already integrated 3D printing into its product development cycle, now Ford is using large format 3D printing to manufacture end parts.
Large format 3d printing – which creates complete pieces with high degrees of mechanical strength – is often used for specialist tooling applications in the automotive industry. Volkswagen, for example, uses 3D printing to make nearly all of the tools used in its factories. This move followed a successful pilot at the manufacturer’s Autoeuropa factory in Portugal.
Large format 3D printers are also seeing a lot of use in the automotive industry with replica and remodelled classic cars. Now, cars that could never have been remodelled due to lack of available parts are seeing a second life on the road at the hands of a dedicated mechanic and a large format 3D printer.

Desktop 3D printers can produce highly accurate, working prototypes. They are being used in medical and dental offices, aerospace and automotive engineering desks, and in many industrial manufacturing sectors.

‍The big benefit to 3D printing is that making parts and pieces more complex (in terms of shape) does not result in a lengthier or more costly production process. Unlike traditional machining, where complex shapes have to be painstakingly milled from material at multiple angles, desktop 3D printing enables the quick and relatively cheap production of prototypes and custom jigs.
Desktop 3D printing allows designers to make unique and interesting jigs for innovative molding applications. Round and conformal jigs can be easily designed using CAD software and then 3D printed in the office to cast a delicate, thin, or curved object.Designers and engineers no longer have to wait days or weeks for third parties to finish manufacturing a jig or prototype. Instead, the desktop 3D printer prepares the desired part overnight, and the engineer or designer finds it on their desk in the morning.
This significant reduction in lead time for prototypes and jigs adds significant value to design and R&D processes in manufacturing. Engineers can test and reiterate designs more quickly, spotting potential problems that might arise in production before they happen.
Using desktop 3D printing for prototypes and jigs saves money and time, gives designers a much higher degree of creative freedom, and enables early problem solving to ensure a successful manufacturing process. These benefits are to be had for any manufacturing business today.

Furthermore, metal 3D printers allow engineers in the aerospace and automotive industries to design with a high degree of creative freedom, no longer limited by off the shelf products and standard measurements.

‍Modern metal 3D printers for aerospace and industry can print products that do not compromise on strength or durability. These machines are capable of 3D printing engine parts, body and chassis pieces, bespoke tooling, and many more innovative applications.
Aerospace and defense industries have been major early adopters of metal 3D printing technology. Today, around a third of all metal 3D printing is done by or for these advanced engineering sectors.
Spending in the defense sector typically results in civilian applications coming down the line in subsequent years. This truism holds for metal 3D printing as well. Heavy investment by defense departments in metal 3D printing in the early 2000s has led to state of the art machines being produced for the automotive and aerospace industries today.
Metal 3D printing can create high-strength, lightweight prototypes and parts at a much lower cost, and shorter lead time, than any traditional metal machining process. Boeing announced recently that their main aircraft production line is integrating titanium 3D printing for structural components in the 787 Dreamliner. The aerospace giant has forecast savings of up to $3 million per plane to be achieved with metal 3D printing.
Metal 3D printing also sees use for custom tooling and machinery applications, customised consumer parts, and vintage and retro car maintenance. The aerospace and automotive industries alike are using metal 3D printers for far more than just prototyping today.
