These 3D-printed transport innovations range from compact car parts to eco vehicles like city bikes that can be folded for easy storage. Additive manufacturing is no longer a rarity as more brands begin to embrace this emerging technology.

No longer just a novelty, innovations in the world of 3D-printed transport are changing the way we travel along with the way the industry manufacture cars, bicycles and even airplanes. While engineers are creating their very own 3D-printed vehicle engines and transmissions, car part manufacturers are taking notice and are opening up online retail platforms that offer inexpensive and 3D-printed vehicle accessories.

Furthermore, concept cars are becoming more and more sophisticated as major brands become more interested in emerging technologies and their growing potential.
