Race Car Motor Intake
Hamilton, New Zealand
New Zealand-based Volumetric NZ was founded in part to take advantage of advances in 3D printing. They primarily provide solutions for the automotive industry, including the manufacture of racing-grade components.
Markforged technology makes it possible to manufacture quality parts in a small workshop. Volumetric NZ has printed hundreds of unique components, often using fiber-reinforced Onyx. These intake and inlet runners not only have an aesthetically pleasing finish, they're chemical-resistant and heat-resistant. The printed part is completely functional, and led to measurably increased horsepower.
