Last week we showed you a video of Koenigsegg, a supercar manufacturer, using 3D printing to build and improve their latest One:1 supercar. This week, Drive Channel have released another episode in the ‘Inside Koenigsegg’ video series explaining how 3D printing is changing the way they create Turbochargers. Initially, Christian von Koenigsegg and his team tried to cast their patented, two chamber turbo design, but ultimately failed. They then turned to 3D printing, which let them create the complex shape of the turbo housing in either stainless steel or titanium. Another added benefit of 3D printing the turbo was the ability to print the moving components inside the housing of the turbo, eliminating time consuming assembly. Check it out below.
