3D printing comes to Formula 1

3D printing

La Print 3D It is making huge strides and in a few months it has gone from printing small objects without much utility to printing large objects that can be from houses to cars that work perfectly. For the so-called great Formula 1 circus this new technology has not gone unnoticed and there are already several teams that are beginning to consider the possibility of creating parts or even a complete chassis.

At the moment no team has dared to take the step of confessing that it is 3D printing various parts of its car for testing, but we could say that this is an open secret.

At the moment what we do know is that Team Strakka, present in the Renault World Series and also in the WEC, will create a car in which most of the parts will be 3D printed. At the moment they are very far from Formula 1, but perhaps sooner or later we will see how a team from it announces something similar.

Nowadays Most of the parts of the chassis of a Formula 1 are made of resin thanks to the speed with which they can be created and especially its resistance. If it is verified that the pieces created from a 3D printer are just as resistant, we would soon see how all the teams make use of this new technology since it is much faster than any other.

3D printing seems to have already reached Formula 1 although now it is still missing because some team takes the final step and assembles the 3D printed parts in their car.

Do you think we will see a fully 1D printed car in Formula 3 within a few years?.
