Print-a-Beemer

What’s most stunning about the BMW i-3/60° isn’t its futuristic yet viable appearance. It’s what’s inside! The vehicle’s construction consists of layered structural elements that were designed to ease transportation while maintaining structural integrity. After building the shell, the remaining exterior and accessory parts are chosen from a 3D-printable catalogue for the user’s complete customization. Check out the vid for the full 360°!

  • Cannot wait until 3D printing technology is at a point where we are all able to print off everyday objects (such as cars and gadgets). I look forward to tweaking the imperfections of products to suit my needs and standards. The design engineers skills will come in great demand.
