Stratasys will work closely with the Formula 1 team as it ramps up its rapid manufacturing capacity at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, UK.

McLaren Racing will be receiving Stratasys’ latest FDM– and PolyJet-based 3D printing solutions and cutting-edge materials for visual and functional prototyping, production tooling including composite tooling, and customised production parts. This will enable accelerated delivery while increasing performance and productivity in McLaren’s design and manufacturing operations.

“The ability to rapidly model, build and evaluate new components is an invaluable asset for any fast-moving and dynamic racing organisation. But our new partnership with Stratasys will not only increase our output in that area, but also allow us to dynamically explore and utilise the cutting edge of Stratasys’ new 3D printing innovations and solutions,” said Eric Boullier, racing director of McLaren Racing. “It has become clear that motorsport’s reliance on rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, and the ability to radically cut time to market, is increasing, and we look to being well served by our new alliance with Stratasys.”
