Customization is a very interesting trade opportunity for automotive companies. Indeed, consumers choose ever more the car as a means of expressing themselves. To meet these needs, the best solution is to rely on a highly-skilled 3D-printing company.

Daihatsu case study

Daihatsu Motor Company is a carmaker based in Osaka, Japan. In this case, the company wanted more customer’s participation in the design process, the service made available by 3D-printing experts to designers, engineers and technicians of the Daihatsu Company has been the key to reach this goal. The outcome of this extraordinary work has been a custom proposal composed of 15 pieces of different patterns, each one is available in 10 colors.

Customized parts for end-use applications thanks to additive manufacturing

These patterns, inspired by fashion, geometric and natural shapes, enable the manufacturer to make a custom proposal never seen before in automotive field. These 15 custom possibilities, called “Effect Skins”, are now available for clients that can choose which one can be applied on car bumpers. For this project, the material suggested by 3D-printing experts is ASA, a thermoplastic that combines mechanical strength, an extraordinary UV stability and a high-quality aesthetic finishing. Thanks to 3D-printing experts it is possible to realize not only prototypes for functional tests and for aesthetic assessments, but also end-use parts, engineered to withstand real-world conditions on car exterior. The result achieved by Daihatsu Motor Company is a higher customer satisfaction.
