Default Fire up your 3D printer! Honda releases data for several of its past concepts [w/video]

Filed under: Concept Cars, Plants/Manufacturing, Technology, Videos, Honda, Design/Style



Futurists have been treating 3D printing like it is the second coming of the Industrial Revolution for years. Everyone will have a 3D printer in their garage and be able make practically anything at home before you know it, right? Well... not quite.

While we can imagine a piece of trim breaking on our car and being able to download the file to print a new one at home, the reality is that 3D printing is still in its earliest stages as a consumer device. Still, Honda is capitalizing on the technology by allowing people to make models of its concept cars at home.

The Honda 3D Design Archive currently consists of five models based on the Fuya-Jo, FSR, Kiwami, Puyo, and NSX concepts. The printer files can be downloaded from the web and carry Creative Commons 4.0 licenses, which allow them to be freely shared. Honda promises that more files will be added to the archive soon.

Honda's 3D Design Archive may be providing little more than toys at present, but it shows exciting promise for the future. Scroll down to watch a time-lapse video of Honda printing its Puyo concept.Continue reading Fire up your 3D printer! Honda releases data for several of its past concepts [w/video]
