Additively manufactured roof frame with local carbon fiber reinforcement

To date, polymer-based additively manufactured structures have failed to gain a foothold in vehicle bodies due to inadequate mechanical characteristics. Now, Audi and CIKONI have presented an approach combining additive manufacturing with carbon fiber reinforcement based on a concept study. You can either review the […]
