Produced using a 3D printed FDM sacrificial core, the final carbon fibre intake manifold is 60% lighter than those produced via conventional methods. © StratasysStudent motorsport team Tecnun is slashing the time taken to create complex end-use race parts while significantly reducing their weight by using Stratasys 3D printed sacrificial cores to innovate composite part production. 

Tecnun, the Formula student team from the University of Navarra in Spain, designs and manufactures its own Formula Student race cars that compete each year at the Formula Student International competition. By harnessing additive manufacturing technology it is now able to produce extremely complex 3D printed moulds for key race parts in a matter of a few hours, compared to three weeks when using traditionally-manufactured aluminum moulds.
