Automotive Aftermarket

3D printing solutions

We supply resins that create printed parts that look and perform like tooled plastic. The cost-effective alternative, proven in real-life applications, used in all weather conditions.

Titan creates large dimensionally accurate pieces for numerous auto applications, such as panels and covers.

Magna is proven as the most effective method of making small and medium sized fixtures for the automotive aftermarket sector. It has created hundreds of thousands of parts for companies typically where they have a lot of designs with low to medium volumes that don’t merit tooling

For large volumes of functional parts, there is only one solution, Magna.

In 2023, LUMotorsport approached Photocentric to utilise their expertise in 3D printing. Working together, they have printed multiple aerodynamic parts, composite tooling and motorsport-standard electrical junction boxes for this year’s car, using the Liquid Crystal Magna 3D printer offering the following:

  • Large-scale parts
  • Complex, non-planar geometry
  • Large height to bed contact area ratio
  • Clean surface finish to minimise skin friction
  • Increased design freedom for carbon tooling without the constraints of machining tooling block
  • Lower weight inserts for aerodynamic surfaces compared to previous aluminium ones

– Piese de mari dimensiuni
– Geometrie complexa, neplanara
– Raport mare intre inaltimea piesei si suprafata de contact cu patul de imprimare
– Finisaj curat al suprafetei pentru a minimiza frecarea
– Libertate de proiectare crescuta pentru sculele din carbon, fara constrangerile prelucrarii blocurilor de scule
– Insertii mai usoare pentru suprafetele aerodinamice comparativ cu cele anterioare din aluminiu

Printing large scale prototype parts

The VisionVenture, co-created by BASF and HYMER, is a near-production glimpse into the future of van life. Body panels for the prototype were printed using the Liquid Crystal Titan printer. Our 3D printing solutions, including the Liquid Crystal Titan and Magna, offer the capability to create precise and functional parts for a variety of industrial applications. From the automotive aftermarket sector, where printed parts can replace machined components at reduced costs, to innovative projects like Hymer’s VisionVenture, our technology demonstrates flexibility and efficiency. Collaboration with the LUMotorsport team highlights our advantages in manufacturing complex and lightweight aerodynamic parts for motorsport competitions. By using advanced 3D printers, we provide durable and adaptable solutions while maintaining high standards of quality and precision.
