Stratasys is collaborating with Andretti Autosport, (a top performer in IndyCar, Indy Lights, Rallycross and Formula E) to help the company leverage advanced FDM technology and materials to accelerate design and development of the team’s diverse racing platforms.
“We have been looking for the right partner to add 3D capability to our design and development activities for a while now,” said Andretti Autosport COO Rob Edwards. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to establish a relationship with the industry leader, Stratasys. Since the machines were commissioned they have been operating at capacity and we look forward to seeing the benefits of our expanded capability on the race-track in 2019.”
Andretti will advance both design and production cycles using the Stratasys F370 and Fortus 450mc 3D Printers.
The team – led by Michael Andretti – will continue to make significant strides in converting parts via in-house 3D printing. Andretti kicks into high gear with the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series season – beginning on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida, March 10 and continues through September with 17 rounds of competition.
Led by racing legend Michael Andretti, Andretti Autosport boasts a racing portfolio rooted in tradition and designed for success.
