The World’s First 3D Printed Car Needs Your Help

By on November 14th, 2013 in Usage


You might recall the Urbee, the world’s first 3D printed car (or at least 3D printed body), unveiled in 2011. Now the folks behind the project are looking to build interest and funding to proceed to Urbee-2, a more advanced vehicle. 
The new vehicle will have not only a 3D printed body, but also a 3D printed interior
They’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign where you can support the project by acquiring “Driving for Our Lives”, a book being written by Jim Kor, the man behind the project. 
If the project receives sufficient funding to proceed with the full development of Urbee-2 (expected to be in the USD$3M range), they’ll attempt to set a record in 2015 by driving from New York City to San Francisco using only 10 US gallons of bio-fuel.
