Resultado de imagem para bcn3d logoThe 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.
