The 3D-printed, zero-emission vehicle was built in the fall of 2014 at IMTS -The International Manufacturing Technology Show, the nation’s largest manufacturing trade show, produced by AMT – The Association for Manufacturing Technology. The vehicle named “Strati,” meaning “layers” in homage to its Italian designer, came together through collaboration between AMT, IMTS, Local Motors, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Cincinnati, Inc.

Manufacturing and 3D printing has once again been brought to the forefront, with President Obama traveling this week to Michigan to discuss US manufacturing.
