Drive Fast, Go Left...Print Parts: 3D Printing Finding A Home In NASCAR
Produced by Don Schick, Steve Filmer and Craig Johnson
“Just when you think you’ve seen it all in that NASCAR garage, something else rears its head. Maybe it could be 3D printing.”
Over the last decade, 3D printing has become a staple in NASCAR manufacturing and development. While 3D printing is still unreliable for the unforgiving race track, its efficiency and repeatability is critical to testing and advancing cars, equipment, and the event itself. Engineers and experienced NASCAR participants agree that this new innovation is fundamental to the future of the league.
