Audi’s 3D printed 1936 Auto Union Type C race car replica was an exercise in its investigation of 3D printing technology

Audi has partnered with EOS’ consulting division Additive Minds to support the automotive manufacturer in the ‘holistic implementation of this industrial 3D printing technology’ and creation of a 3D printing centre in Ingolstadt, Germany.

The industrial use of 3D printing is first being applied to equipment and prototype building at Audi, as well as its motor sports division, which already benefits from the technology.

“The aim is to not only supply Audi with the right additive systems and processes but to also support them during applications development, when building up internal AM knowledge and training their engineers to become in-house AM experts,” said Güngör Kara, director of EOS global application and consulting.

For the first time, ESI’s IC.IDO VR software for design and engineering will work on HMDs like the HTC Vive

IC.IDO 11 is the first version of ESI’s software built to run on head-mounted displays (HMD), in addition to VR CAVEs, powerwalls and desktop systems letting users delve deeper into design exploration through immersive VR.

The additional benefit is that HMDs also promote a collaborative experience: IC.IDO 11 enables users throughout the world to connect to the same session using the same data on the same network, so colleagues can collaborate with each other within the same VR model, regardless of where they are.

ESI adds that users in version 11 will have a ‘more natural experience’, with realistic hand and arm motion, and continue to benefit from real-time and real-scale product interactions.
