The 3D Printed Car revolution is here. Showcasing the power of co-creation and micro-manufacturing of an an electric-powered 3D-printed car – the Local Motors Strati – from the Factory of the Future™.  Everything on the car that could be integrated into a single material piece has been printed.

Local Motors is planning for 100 ‘micro-factories’ globally in the next 10 years.  Gone are the days of mega- or even giga-factories that consume tremendous amounts of time and energy to fabricate products. A more sustainable, nimble and flexible factory is on the horizon. Called microfactories, these diminutive factories drastically change how we produce large consumer goods for unique local needs.
