Solve Your Biggest Exterior Body Challenges

  • A car with a black background with graphic lines indicating movement and acceleration
  • Accelerate Design Validation

    When refining a design, aerodynamic testing is critical to minimizing drag and effectively directing air where desired, but it often requires an incredible amount of time, effort, and investment. The body exterior and panel application eliminates the tooling expense and labor intensity of traditional prototyping by enabling parts to be built in hours so that you can quickly integrate them into the prototype for rapid iteration.

  • Exceptional Production Grade Surface Finish and Quality

    The ability to offer a range of different surface types can help convey the studio’s intent and differentiate vehicles on the market. Our body exterior solution delivers parts with surfaces that support various post-finishing processes, such as sanding, polishing, plating, and painting. This enables you to validate parts during testing and further optimize style and performance.

  • Access High-Performance Materials

    Traditional development processes constrain automotive designers and engineers with their limited number of available materials. In contrast, our additive solutions offer a broad portfolio of durable materials, from rigid plastics to composites and elastomerics, that have the strength, impact resistance, accuracy, and stability to suit the needs of testing and on-road experiences.
