Want a new Ford but you can not afford it? Or you just simply want to have a smaller copy if your Ford car? Then the newest feature made possible by Ford will sure get your attention. The Blue Oval says that his fans can now download digital images for Ford vehicles at the first-ever, automaker-authorized one-stop online store for 3D-printable vehicle files.
The Ford 3D Store, 3d.ford.com, allows customers to use advanced technology to make their own models of Ford vehicles of the size and material they desire, or simply opt to purchase a 3D digital file from a growing library of more than 1,000 Ford images.
Even if it seems not such a big thing right now, Ford anticipates that the industry of 3D printers will grow singnificantly in the years to come.
According to Juniper research, sales of desktop 3D printers will exceed 1 million units by 2018, from an estimated 44,000 sold annually in 2014.
Available 3D-printed Ford models include the new Ford GT, F-150 Raptor, Shelby GT350R, Focus ST and Fiesta ST.
