I'm guessing cars that will have these types of wheels will come standard with CCBs

Cars & Coffee in Rancho Santa Fe is featuring McLaren this Saturday. Might be a good place to show off those 3D wheels!

Ground breaking technology, someone had to do it and you guys threw the glove. Still, years ahead of mass production, since it's an effin expensive process.

Companies that cut wheels in this industry, can sit relieved for a good period of time.

How much time was needed to print the center parts?

Koenigsegg makes 3D printed parts for their cars tho the carbon wheels are done using autoclave.

Bugatti Chiron uses 3D printed calipers, however I don't think that component is stressed as much as wheels.

Single wheel takes a few days, a set would take about a week or so.

These wheels actually exceed our current forged standard so despite what it may look like, this wheel isn't fragile.

Looks like McLaren uses the 5x112 bolt pattern, so if you need to see how they fit a VDub, I'm available.

that doesnt make any sense.

When 3d printing titanium becomes commoditized you could download a cad file and send it to the stop and they would make it for you. I'd imagine prices would come down enough that they would be quite a bit cheaper than the steel forged ones coming from HRE.

My CCBs are far more fragile I believe ~

Forged steel wheels would be awesome!

But seriously, downloading and printing your own wheels from Bucky the 14 year old from Bakersfield sounds great and all, but I think I'll continue to trust engineers and companies with insurance and warranties when it comes to wheels.

I'm a bicyclist and have seen a number of catastrophically failed carbon parts from "the same plant that the big guys use" to trust whackadoodle design.
