Audi Demonstrating 3D Printing Expertise with In-House Design Software in Neckarsulm
- 3D printing helping to create tools that will be used in the assembly of the e-tron GT
- New software developed in cooperation with startup trinckle making design easier
- Due to be rolled out Group-wide
The in-house team of 3D printing specialists at Audi’s Böllinger Höfe site has teamed up with trinckle, a company based in Berlin, to develop innovative design software. The objective is to enable any employee who needs a tool from the 3D printer to design it personally without needing extensive prior knowledge. The Audi e-tron GT is the first vehicle for which 3D printing is an established part of preparations for series production, which means that all the tools for assembly and pre-assembly are in place at the start of production.
