Hello all

I'm researching an article for Auto Express magazine here in the UK about how 3D printing will revolutionise the way we look after our cars. Service centres and garages won't need to keep a large stock of spares, manufacturers can create spares on the fly and, ultimately, we should be able to create new door handles, switches, air vents and so on, at home.

Is anyone here printing anything for their car and, if so, would you be willing to answer a few questions to be quoted in the article?

Get in touch either through the forum or privately (nik.rawlinson@gmail.com) if you'd like to take part.

I have printed louvered fenders and fairings for an Ariel Atom. Printed the parts, finished them and then had molds made. Once I had the molds I then created the carbon fiber parts from them.
