First Car Constructed with 3D Printer, Kinda

Stratasys and Kor Ecologic have built a prototype electric hybrid car, named Urbee, that has been entirely constructed using a 3D printer, making it the first drivable road car ever built using a 3D printer.

It’s not quite as awesome as it initially sounds, considering only the exterior parts in the two-passenger hybrid were constructed using the 3D printer, meaning if the construction was left entirely to the 3D printer, the car would be a big, useless model car. Though the 3D printing doesn’t produce parts that actually make the car drive, it does make redesigns and aesthetic tooling a very quick and efficient process.

Either way, a car that was printed is pretty neat. Also, it looks like this:

So, that’s something.
