Formula One cars are the fastest road course racing cars, and it's the underlying technology that goes into these finely constructed cars which makes all the difference between winning and losing. The sport requires the ultimate car design to achieve very high cornering speeds, and components must be stronger, lighter and more aerodynamic - all at the same time.
With strict regulations on actual track testing, the pressure is on for teams to get their off-track design right in the winter and throughout the season. Wind tunnel testing and development is a key area where teams gain that all important competitive edge.
Watch this webinar to see how SLA 3D printing technology from 3D Systems gives Sahara Force India the advantage to manage quick turnaround times and make larger models with increasing accuracy.
- How Sahara Force India uses 3D printing to create thousands of prototype parts to test ideas in the wind tunnel
- Why continuous refining and re-design of the cars' aerodynamics is critical and successful modifications can add points of downforce to the car which translates to tenths of a second on track lap time
- Why 3D Systems' SLA printers are the gold standard in 3D printing
- How 3D Systems’ engineered composite SLA materials offer the exceptional stiffness and accuracy that F1 wind tunnel testing requires
