British supercar manufacturer, Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) has utilized prototyping specialists Malcolm Nicholls Limited (MNL) and British 3D printer manufacturer RPS to provide 3D printed parts for the recently announced BAC Mono R.
BAC launched the next generation of the world-renowned Mono single-seater at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July this year, showcasing a cutting-edge, more organic and lighter design. Partnered with DSM, BAC co-developed 3D printing applications that were utilized in the manufacturing of the Mono R. 3D printing offered BAC more freedom to create sinuous, organic designs and achieve significant weight savings.
To develop the prototype, BAC required many large 3D printed parts for the Mono R launch and worked with MNL prototyping services through DSM to help with the project. MNL, a 3D printing service bureau based in Bidford-on-Avon, England, provides prototyping services for a range of industries and is home to one of the largest 3D printing stereolithography systems available, the RPS NEO800.
