Vehicle Customization with 3D Printed Parts and Patterns

Digitize Production to Customize Vehicles Faster and Cheaper

UP TO 3X FASTER 

Reduce lead times, avoid outsourcing, and save time with streamlined processes.

REDUCE COSTS BY 70%

Bypass expensive machining by directly printing end-use parts and low-cost patterns.

 DIGITAL INVENTORY ON DEMAND

Produce on demand without added costs and avoid the cost and uncertainty of keeping stock parts.

From personal restoration projects to high-performance upgrades, vehicle customization is a complex process to produce unique components painstakingly handmade by skilled experts. Digitizing this process drastically reduces production time and number of stages while saving money and material costs, however not all 3D printing solutions are able to meet the demands of this application. BigRep 3D printers are indispensable and versatile tools to produce large-scale, quality end use parts and prototypes to redefine the custom automotive industry.

Custom Auto Interiors with
3D Printed End-Use Parts

Refurbishing vintage cars with modern interior components is faster and cheaper with 3D printed end-use parts. Printed components and adapters allow new parts to be implemented into a visually undisturbed vintage look.

  • 3D scan the car interior
  • 3D model the custom part
  • 3D print the part
  • Post process the part

Custom Carbon Fiber Exteriors
with 3D Printed Prototypes

For carbon fiber exterior components, 3D printed prototypes and patterns streamline the process of creating custom parts that require a perfect fit.

  • 3D scan the car exterior
  • 3D model the custom part
  • 3D print the prototype
  • Make a mold of the 3D print
  • Create the final carbon fiber part using the mold

"The conventional way to produce something like this is highly manual. With the BigRep and 3D printing, it fits perfectly the first time which really helps us stay on project timelines."

Jeremy Katz, Owner of JK Automotive Designs

"Now we don't have to keep parts in stock. We have a digital file and when a customer orders it, just hit print and ship it to them."

Trevor McLaws, CAD Designer at Fat Fender Garage.

"I have zero failures. I just press print every time and I walk away. My prints are 6-10 days long!"

Zeeshan Khan, Founder of XENONX UK
