3D Printing is a revolutionizing technology extensively used in automotive and aerospace industries. It is an additive layer manufacturing process by which a scale model is quickly fabricated from CAD data in just a matter of hours. ...In Automotive trims, 3D Printing technology is a boon. It is used: To simulate the ‘tooled up/production part’ in terms of assembly, defined function, limited CMF and fit & finish. ...In this paper, we will discuss on the technical aspects of how the trims 3D printed models have been effectively put to use. We have covered case studies under door trims, floor console, tail gate trim, glove box latch, molded spare wheel cover, Instrumental panel duct and bumper mask-painting template.

Additive (3D Printing) Manufacturing

2018-04-12
This session deals with the manufacture of detail parts through laser sintering, stereo lithography, fused deposition modeling, and other emerging technologies. The session will explore technologies and methods for producing net or near net parts in various resins, plastics and metals directly from a CAD model that could employ design architectures that couldn't be achieved by other manufacturing methods.
