This time we have to move to South Korea to get to know a very particular company, KLIO Design, which is classified as a car manufacturer that has managed to revolutionize the world of 3D printing thanks to the presentation of its latest novelty at the International Smart Mobility Exhibition where they have taken nothing less than a vehicle manufactured almost entirely using 3D printing techniques.
On this occasion, as is often the case with many other vehicles, it has not been possible to manufacture entirely with this type of technology because there is still no material necessary and of sufficient reliability, there are only some prototypes, to manufacture electronic parts, for example. Even so, KLIO Design surprises us with a vehicle where both its structure and its seats have been manufactured with an industrial 3D printer.
KLIO Design anticipates a future full of vehicles manufactured using 3D printing
According to the directors of KLIO Design, it seems that thanks to the use of 3D printing in the manufacture of different parts, different structures can be offered to the client in terms of design. always attending to specific criteria such as the capacity of the vehicle itself, the environmental impact or the use that will be given to the car.
As for the chassis itself, tell you that KLIO Design has manufactured many of its parts using 3D printing, to this we have to add different ones such as the wheel covers, the wheel fenders and even the steering wheel. Thanks to all this, it has been possible to create a vehicle of a much lower weight, structurally stiffer and even faster to manufacture Thanks to the fact that it has been possible to not depend on molds for the creation of different pieces.
