materials, and customizable finishes have encouraged automobile
manufacturers to integrate 3D printing processes in their production
strategies. The manufacturing process of automobile components involves
the use of metal additives for investment casting, customized tooling,
and prototyping. Selective laser sintering, fused deposition, and
selective laser melting are some of the technologies used in said
manufacturing process. Metal additive manufacturing is also used for the
production of different automobile parts such as bumpers, windbreakers,
pumps, valves, and cooling vents.
