For over 4 years, the company "Phenix Retro Concept" and the "Alpines Auto Racing" workshop (specialized in restoring Alpines, Renault group cars) have been employing industrial processes like casting and resin molding, now integrated with additive manufacturing, to craft components for vintage vehicles through reverse engineering.
To illustrate this further: an aluminum component located beneath the engine hood, which is no longer available for sale, requires exceptional mechanical and thermal resilience. Consequently, the part has been substituted with a component 3D-printed using the UNIVERSAL ULTRA material, which not only meets these requirements but also boasts a highly premium visual appearance.
3D printing enables them to manufacture both:
- prototypes used for creating silicone molds,
- tooling components,
- technical components integrated into vehicles.
