Towing a car with a 3d printed part
Video demonstrates the functionality and strength of a low cost, light-weight, fully 3d printed part.
Materials: Nylon & Kevlar. (Carbon Fiber and fiberglass can also be 3d printed).
All composites shown are made with continuous strands, providing exceptional strength (30 times stronger and stiffer than ABS).
Resolution: 0.1 mm
Print Time: 7 hrs
Test: 3000lb car (without a driver & Engine not running) is towed uphill.
Brief Introductory video to "Eiger".
Eiger is the slicer software which allows the user to 3d print parts stronger and lighter than metal by combining tough engineering plastic with composites such as carbon fiber, kevlar, and fiberglass.
