Sports car Lamborghini Aventador printed on a 3D printer (7 photos)

3D printing penetrates all spheres of human activity. Sterling Backus tried to use three-dimensional printing to copy an elite sports car Lamborghini Aventador. As an associate, the enthusiast took his 11-year-old son, for the sake of whom an experiment was started on printing at home a full-sized copy of a car, the cost of which is 300 thousand dollars. Using the example of creating a printed sports car, Bakus tried to demonstrate to his son and his peers the capabilities of modern science, technology and engineering knowledge. The experimenters used three 3D printers: CR-10S, CR-105S and QIDI Xpro. Technological drawings of cars were borrowed from the Internet. But so that the automaker would not bring an enthusiast to court for illegal use of information, as well as for industrial espionage, the daredevil introduced changes to each printed panel. Thus, his Lamborghini Aventador got its own unique design, although in general appearance the sports car is similar to the original. The CR-10S and CR-105S printers printed plastic car parts. QIDI Xpro was used to create critical parts from high-strength structural materials. The Lamborghini Aventador frame is made of steel, which should ensure the safety and strength of the car. Part of the details: wheels, engine and gearbox were purchased on eBay. The cost of enthusiasts to create a printed Lamborghini was only 20 thousand dollars. Currently, the car is preparing to conduct test sea trials.
