McLaren Racing 3D prints 9000 parts a year

Formula One team McLaren Racing is responding to tighter vehicle production time and budget limits from the FIA by 3D printing tens of thousands of parts with large, next-generation Neo800 stereolithography 3D printers from Stratasys. McLaren is winning the ‘race before the race’ by producing up to 9000 parts per year across numerous front and rear wing programmes, as well as large parts of the side bodywork and top body. The race team reports big strides in optimising vehicle aerodynamics during wind tunnel testing thanks to the accuracy of the parts printed on its five Neo800 systems.
