The AchieVer posted a topic in General NewsLamborghini uses Carbon's digital manufacturing for end-use parts The first production parts will be for the Urus model of Lamborghini’s Super SUV, one of the world's fastest SUVs. Lamborghini Lamborghini, the Italian sports car brand, is the latest automotive company to adopt 3D printing technology for its production process. The company is working with Carbon to more efficiently produce lightweight, high quality, end-use parts. Specifically, Lamborghini is using Carbon technology to redesign several parts of its vehicle interior, mirror assembly and accessory components. The first production parts are a new textured fuel cap with the Urus label and a clip component for an air duct. Both parts are on the Urus model of Lamborghini's Super SUV -- one of the world's fastest SUVs with a price tag of around $200,000. To produce the parts, Lamborghini will use Carbon printers as well as Carbon's Digital Light Synthesis (DLS) technology, which uses light and oxygen to rapidly produce products from a pool of resin. Lamborghini is also collaborating with Volkswagen's Electronic Research Lab in the redesign process. "Through our extensive procurement research, we found that many of our vehicle components were ideal candidates for digital manufacturing," Lamborghini Chief Procurement Officer Stefan Gramse said in a statement. "By partnering with Carbon, we are designing on the means of production, which allows us to produce more durable products smarter, faster, and more efficiently, while also substantially accelerating our time to market." A number of automakers are experimenting with different materials and manufacturing techniques. Last month, for instance, Carbon showcased the first digitally manufactured polymer parts in production for Ford, including Ford Focus HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Cooling) Lever Arm Service Parts. Meanwhile, Audi has adopted Stratasys 3D printingmethods in a plot to drastically reduce the time required for prototyping. Source
straycat19 posted a topic in Jokes & Funny StuffTaiwan held the public execution this week…of a Lamborghini. The $300,000-plus Murcielago was impounded three years ago after it was pulled over at a police checkpoint and found to be displaying license plates registered to a Ford sedan. Turns out the owner had illegally imported the exotic ride and was trying to drive it under the radar, perhaps not the easiest thing to do in a customized, matte black supercar. Focus Taiwan reports that the owner, a commercial pilot, had spent the last couple of years filing appeals, but failed in his efforts. The sentence was carried out at a wrecking yard by a claw-equipped backhoe, with little regard to the dignity of the car.
