The Blade: The World’s First 3D-Printed Supercar

3D printing technology has sure come a long way since its first inception, and it’s now being utilized in all sorts of ways, making it possible for people to build more efficient and cost-effective constructs. What we can build is only limited by our own imagination.

It has come so far that the folks at Divergent Microfactories have built the first-ever 3D printed, fully functional supercar called the Blade. It uses aluminum joints called Nodes to connect aerospace carbon fiber tubing to create the car’s groundbreaking chassis.

With the car’s revolutionary skeleton weighing at a mere 102 pounds, its 90 percent reduction in its overall weight has the car tip the scale at only 1,388 pounds. This super light weight construction combined with a 700HP bi-fuel engine allows the car to go from o to 60 in under 2.5 seconds.

The chassis assembly takes less than an hour to put together by hand, eliminating the need for machines in the manufacturing process and bringing down carbon emissions. It’s green, it’s sleek and it’s powerful.
