Leeroy Jenkins : so i can download a car ?

Shade Dark : So... you CAN Download a car!

Gaming Droid : Now lets see some crash tests

RyoHazuki224 : This is so strange!! I was just reading some car magazine the other day, i forget which one, but it was talking about a LaFerrari and it's carbon fiber monocoque tub, and the thought came in my head "Hmm, I wonder how feasable it would be to 3D print a car? Not all of it of course, but the main chassis and body?" This was just like two days ago, and now I'm watching it happen!! Great minds think alike huh? :) Now all we need a 3D metal laser sinterer to print the engine and other metal parts while it's printing the rest of the car. Imagine a whole car printed with not just composite materials but metal as well and at the same time! Now that is the future!

starview1 : Soon everything will be 3 d printed, will be awesome,when graphene is used on stuff,the things will be almost indestructible ( almost) . Steet version expected around 2016 (at least that's what is reported)

soltystoja : Gówno! I nic więcej!

PlasmaMongoose : _"You wouldn't download a car"_ But soon you can.

Marcin Wagner : Nieźle, nieźle :)) #Druk3D  

Jason Faulks : Wow! Simply wow! I have been following this project with excitement for a while now. I can't wait to see it finished and rolling! Great job to whoever put this promo piece together too!

Thomas Lee Mullins : It might not be a practical way to make a car but if one has the money, it would be - IMO - a cool way to create a car. 

Segara : the person that did it is a genius

thealbumcollector : Interesting that the ad plays, but the video doesn't. Is this YouTube's attempt at protesting the internet takeover?

Gencoil : Now show us the car on the road.

Paugam Magnétiseur : GREEEEEAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tiia Kahila : Yay. Soon we see pirated copies of luxury cars and boats.

ВИДЕО ДЛЯ ВСЕХ : нада принтер который будет печатать любую еду )))

Omikron : 3D printers print house, now car. Tesla motors. Automatization, shorten working hours to 6 hours

EllidanX : Вот если бы они электрическую часть напечатали, или хотя бы аккумулятор.

Lee Patterson : Yaaaaawwwwwwnnnnnn.....not impressed

Baidu Mobile : AWESOME !!!

T8o Spinners : Boy! That's one ANNOYING video! The cuts are so fast, I couldn't focus on anything. Or was that intentional? :-)

edix1986 : n blue screen

Jonathan Long : What kind of filament is this, and could it be used to make motors im very curious

Berixist : awesome cant wait

customanimation4u : im gonna print a bike

James L : AWESOME ! ! ! !I bet the car floats too - do a boat next ! ! !

abba zhaba : У них был 3Д принтер для создания корпуса автомобиля, а они напечатали такое уебище...

TheMagicmodel : Now that's what I'm talking about!

Nicko G. : I just liked an ad again.

x3cut0ra : Nice, but 30 000$ is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much for shit like this.

Painless1992 : Too bad they couldn't come up with decent design.

Steve Kroll : I did not see any 3D bearings being printed. How will it move efficiently without precision bearings? OOPS?

Alex Li : What is the engine made of? is it also printed?

Spoon-Dono : The video shows no info as the only purpose of this vehicle is to get into history books. The way the vehicle is being printed is not structurally sound and it constantly wants to break itself in half. The plastic that has to be used through the extruder can't withstand prolonged bouts of extreme AZ heat. It's not meant for the general public to buy, at least right now, because it shatters in crash tests. Besides, it would be far too expensive after all the man hours and specialty parts to buy. If you tried it, you'd first need to buy the really big, really expensive, still not perfect, 3D printer. Rich people that go to LM all the time might be able to afford it but it'll take a long time to make sure it stays together although I doubt it will be safe.

popace : And safety of this car is probably on a level of a 1970's Holden. Aaaaah right.

JourneyedAvenger : I can imagine how often you'd have to be printing parts for that. It would probably be worse that bought from China

Gavin Mehl : nut

Bobby Griffin : im british

Nandesh Nair : Can a printed car pass crash tests?


parapobabam : ugly finish. needs to be a smooth shiny surface.

Bobby Griffin : hi

Roman Hrushchak : not the first printed car, but the price is ok.

ВОЛЬДЕМАР Вечерний : а как же колеса, двигатель, всякие шланги и подшипники? Хрень какая то...

A. F. : well..let's see..first: what engine you can put in it and what is the top speed and the maximum distance covered? as i see it won't speed more than a scooter...second: security matters, can we see a crash test?it seems that it will colapse at first touch to any hard surface..third: what is its price? i heard it will be between 10 000 - 20 000.. wtF??why all these electric cars made by big corporations are so fuking expensive?again somebody took the monopoly on this technology and puts its prices..i just wait for the time when they will make electric cheap cars, affordable for everybody, and 0 polution.

Sandra James : Why is there no live feed on the car being printed now? I am sure Youtube would have agreed to allow it. How about daily updates with photos? Can we at least get live feed on Saturday of the car being assembled and driven from McCormick place?

eNZy lb : DAMN MAN!!!! at least for the history books!!! thi FUGLY design will haunt us as the first printed car!!! WHY??? i feel sry for the effort put into this! why not making something like KTM or POLARIS or lambo EGOISTA...???

ChiefBearjew : So, pretty much these things are going to put everyone out of a job eventually?

Mark Hall : My only issue with this is, as a single unit, how are repairs made?  Would you have to cast a whole entire new car?
