3D Printing Helps Silverado Lose 450 Pounds

1268 × 634

When the redesigned next generation 2019 Chevrolet Silverado arrives in our showroom later this year, it will have dropped 450 pounds from the previous model year. This is thanks to General Motors’ investment in 3D printing and generative design technologies that generate design options based on goals and parameters set by the user, such as weight, strength, material choice, and fabrication method. Since 2016, GM has dropped more than 5,000 pounds across 14 different vehicles, increasing vehicle efficiency with sacrificing performance or safety. “This disruptive technology provides tremendous advancements in how we can design and develop components for our future vehicles to make them lighter and more efficient, said GM Vice President Ken Kelzer, Global Vehicle Components and Subsystems. “When we pair the design technology with manufacturing advancements such as 3D printing, our approach to vehicle development is completely transformed and is fundamentally different to co-create with the computer in ways we simply couldn’t have imagined before.” Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort, Lansing and Bradley has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a huge selection of current-generation Silverados.
