    The 3D printer allows miracles. In fact, almost.

    Find parts for a model of which very few copies have been produced is sometimes of the work of a monastic. It is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

    History of facilitating somewhat the life of the collectors, Porsche has had the brilliant idea of producing parts using a 3D printer for these models the most rare : 356, 911 964, 959, etc

    At this time, the car manufacturer from Stuttgart has nine parts and is considering the possibility of offering a dozen other eventually. Most of these new parts are made from original molds.

    In addition to the dimensions of the pieces made at the time, the new parts created using a 3D printer must meet the same requirements. By doing this, their contact resistance to oil, gasoline, acid, and light must be checked.

    At the present time, the price is not yet known. It is still highly rewarding to observe the automotive sector to leverage the technology of 3D printer.
