Local Motors Announces Winners of First-Ever 3D-Printed Car Design Challenge

About the partnership with Local Motors and this endeavor to deliver the world’s first 3D printed vehicle prototype, Peter R. Eelman, Vice President, Exhibitions & Communications, AMT, had this to say, “This continues the legacy of Local Motors bringing disruptive technology to IMTS. We started this journey in 2010 when Jay Rogers appeared at AMT’s Annual Meeting, and from that a partnership emerged to build the Rally Fighter on the show floor at IMTS 2012. We are excited to showcase the winner’s innovative design and demonstrate to the industry this new process of manufacturing a car with a substantial structure being 3D printed on-site in AMT’s Emerging Technology Center at IMTS 2014.”
