How the Concept Cars of Tomorrow Are Made With 3D Printing
Located in the heart of the UK's auto industry, Vital Auto is an industrial design studio with deep expertise in automotive design. The company’s illustrious clientele includes many of the major automotive manufacturers, such as Volvo, Nissan, Lotus, McLaren, Geely, TATA, and more.
According to Moradi: "Clients typically come to us to try and push the boundaries of what's possible with the technology available." When manufacturers don't have time for experimentation themselves, they rely on Vital Auto with any kind of challenge to turn ideas, initial sketches, drawings, or technical specifications into a fully realized physical form.
