Every Single Company is trying to impress the world by their Design and Fast Engineers. But the future of auto manufacturing is here. This has done by the Start Up Company Divergent Micro Factories. With their new Sleek and Powerful Super Car. “The Blade”.
Enter the Blade, the first ever supercar to employ 3-D printing technology. Divergent Microfactories, based out of San Fransisco, employed a 3-D printer to create the groundbreaking chassis of this jaw-dropping supercar. It has Aluminum joints called Nodes which connect the aerospace carbon fiber tubing to form the Blade’s chassis.
According the Manufacturer, structure utilizes approximately 61 pounds of aluminum and 41 pounds of carbon fiber.Thus the total chassis weighs a mere 102 pounds. That’s really amazing, and most important thing. Your safety has been taken care off as well. The chassis has undergone the appropriate testing and is actually industrial strength.
Have you played with the K’NEX Sets, if yes. The construction of the chassis also resemblance to K’NEX set and just takes an hour by hand.
The new lightweight infrastructure and its 700HP bi-fuel engine allow the vehicle to accelerate at enviable speeds, reaching 60 mph in just 2.2 seconds.
The goal, however, is to widen the usage of the Node design and technology to sedans and pickups.
Divergent Microfactories hopes this process will not only revolutionize automobile construction, but also encourage a reduction in emissions.
Kevin Czinger, founder & CEO of Divergent Microfactories said “Society has made great strides in its awareness and adoption of cleaner and greener cars. The problem is that while these cars do now exist, the actual manufacturing of them is anything but environmentally friendly,”
According to an analysis published in the Journal of Industrial Ecology, the construction of gas-powered cars produces approximately 14,000 pounds of carbon-dioxide, which is 17% of its lifetime emissions. Electric cars are not perfect either: the study found that their production produces 30,000 pounds of carbon-dioxide. That’s just amazing, reducing the weight the emission of gasses and you will also get the speed.
