Urbee 2: The world’s first 3D printed car ready for production

Feb.11, 2013

Jim Kor is printing a car. That was the Urbee, the world’s first ’3D printed’ car, a two-passenger hybrid car designed to be incredibly fuel efficient and inexpensive to own.

The ‘Urbee’ was created in Sep 2011. it was completely different to the normal way car manufacturers build a car. Kor, an engineer and entrepreneur from Winnipeg, Manitoba, used Stratasys’ 3D printing service to create the prototype for Urbee.

Urbee’s entire body is 3D printed with an additive process. All exterior components, including the glass panel prototypes, were created using Dimension 3D printers and Fortus 3D printers at Stratasys’ digital manufacturing service – RedEye on Demand.
