3D Printing for Automotive Parts
LARGE-SCALE AUTOMOTIVE PROTOTYPING AND CUSTOM BODY KITS AT LIGHTNING SPEED
Print single parts up to six feet long and save additional time joining multiple components.
COMPLETE A FULL-SCALE CAR MOCKUP IN A MATTER OF DAYS
Massivit 3D has dramatically sped up the entire design and production process, allowing car manufacturers to produce lower-cost, higher quality prototypes using additive manufacturing. Lightyears ahead of traditional hand-drawn blueprints and labor-intensive clay, foam, or wood models, Massivit 3D printing systems leverage advanced slicing software and proprietary Gel Dispensing Printing (GDP) technology. Massivit 3D’s vastly improved rapid prototyping technology is capable of producing complete automotive parts up to 6 feet in length, allowing automakers to produce life-sized components such as bumpers and body panels for their mockups – all in a fraction of the time of competing systems!
- Aftermarket Parts – bumpers, spoilers, wings, body panels
- Fitment & Functional Prototypes for design and development
- Visual Models & Mockups
- Full-scale models within days, instead of weeks or months
- Speed up design and development with instant iterations
- Proprietary GDP technology offers improved quality and precision
- Advanced integrated slicing software streamlines design process
- Create larger prototypes that require less manual labor
- Produce less wasted materials and environmental footprint

SEMA Launch of Wide Body Kit Prototype
An industry first – the 2020 Supra MK5 Widebody Kit was launched at SEMA 2019. The kit prototype was 3D printed in 16 parts in just 64 hours. “This was a crazy timeline that would not have been possible without the 3D printer. Since Massivit 3D can print on such a large scale, they are really pushing the envelope on what the industry will start seeing here” said TJ Hunt.
World-First Full Scale 3D Printed Concept Car for FAI
Takumi Yamamoto, renowned designer of the GT by Citroen, unveils the world’s first 3D printed scale concept car, produced on a Massivit 1800 by Marie 3D. Commissioned by the prestigious Festival Automobile International in Paris, FAI President Rémi Depoix said: “I am very impressed with this new technology. It opens up new opportunities in terms of creativity and design for the automotive industry.”
