3D Printing Advances – GM Now Using 3D Printing!

According to GNM, there are over 30,000 parts in your average car–and creating all these pieces, then putting them together requires an incredibly complex supply chain and manufacturing capabilities.

But General Motors and the San Francisco-based software company Autodesk have a plan to upend how cars are designed, reducing the number of car parts that go into each car, while making cars both lighter and stronger. How? Using a tool that Autodesk calls “generative design,” where engineers can put the parameters required for a particular car part into the company’s program, and an algorithm devises and tests every possible form that part could take.
