Rapid Parts Production with Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
FDM can produce concept or functional prototypes and tooling directly from 3D CAD models. Stratasys helps explain the process and its applications here.
While many hybrid systems use the internal combustion engine as a primary way to turn the wheels, Honda engineers have cleverly decided to not only have a highly efficient engine, but to use it mainly as a generator and to make use of electric motors to power the wheels.
