The team ETSEIB Motorsport, one of the most experienced in the Formula Student competition, uses Additive manufacturing to revolutionize their day-to-day operations. Thanks to the BCN3D Sigmax 3D printer, the team has been able to speed up the design phase and to fabricate end-use pieces that are directly mounted on the car itself.

This reduce the car costs and shrink the lead times. They are now capable to iterate faster and get refined designs in a very straightforward workflow.
The Formula Student team
Formula Student is a competition between students from universities around the world that promotes excellence in engineering through a competition where team members design, build, test, and race a formula-type racing car.
The ETSEIB Motorsport team is made up of 40 industrial engineers from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia. This is the 10th consecutive year that they design a formula-type vehicle. For the first 4 years they made combustion cars and these past 6 years they have manufactured electric cars.
