Brake Duct Molds : Part Cost Comparison
95% Cost Savings
92% Time Savings
The introduction of a 3D printer into Garry Rogers Motorsports’ design process gave the engineers and designers new opportunities in how they would be able to produce prototypes and production-standard parts. The Markforged 3D printers, with their ability to print high-tensile parts spliced with carbon fibre, provided the perfect opportunity for the team to manufacture their complex parts quickly and at low cost, without having to sacrifice on quality. Now, parts are made in full compliance with the suggestions of the CFD software, ensuring that the vehicles perform as well as possible. The cheaper nature of 3D printing has also been prevalent in their design process, with parts such as brake duct molds costing $925 less than their manufactured counterparts.
