Bugatti 3D prints world's largest functional titanium car component

Bugatti 3D prints world's largest functional titanium car component

For the first time, the Bugatti developers have succeeded in designing a brake caliper that can be produced by 3-D printing. But that is by no means all. While the main material used for the additive production of vehicle components to date has been aluminium, the new brake caliper is made from titanium.
