Transforming Auto Manufacturing: The Rise of MJF 3D Printing

MJF 3D Printed Automobile Trims

In the dynamic realm of automotive manufacturing, a technological revolution is underway, driven by the innovative capabilities of Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) 3D Printing. This advanced manufacturing process is redefining vehicle design and production and playing a pivotal role in the rapid prototyping of automotive trims, enhancing both functionality and aesthetics in modern vehicles.

Unveiling MJF 3D Printing in the Automotive Sector

What is MJF 3D Printing? Multi Jet Fusion is a state-of-the-art 3D printing technology celebrated for its precision, efficiency, and versatility. By selectively applying fusing and detailing agents to a bed of nylon powder, MJF fabricates parts that are robust, detailed, and ideal for a wide range of applications in the automotive industry.

Benefits Over Traditional Manufacturing MJF stands out for its design flexibility and production agility. It enables the creation of complex, lightweight structures, often impossible with conventional methods. This technology is particularly advantageous for producing bespoke parts, prototypes, and notably, automotive trims, significantly reducing development time and costs.

Revolutionizing Auto Trims and Prototyping with MJF

Rapid Prototyping of Automotive Trims In the automotive sector, the appearance and feel of a vehicle are just as important as its performance. MJF technology excels in the rapid prototyping of automotive trims, allowing designers to experiment with intricate designs and textures for interior and exterior trims. This accelerates the development of aesthetically pleasing and functionally superior trims, such as dashboard components, door handles, and grille covers.

The above image showcases the application of MJF 3D printing in creating a large automotive part, here a fender with a length of 1.8 meters designed for functional testing. It illustrates the “Split Fashion” method where the fender is divided into 8 sections for printing and later assembled into the final product. This project proves a compelling visual proof of concept, demonstrating the Fender’s dimensions and the seamless assembly post-printing (with a tolerance close to 0.3mm maintained after assembly).


Customization and Personalization MJF facilitates a new level of customization for high-end and luxury vehicles. Designers can create unique trims that cater to individual preferences, enhancing the exclusivity and appeal of each vehicle.

Enhanced Performance and Efficiency Beyond aesthetics, MJF contributes to producing trims that are lighter and stronger, impacting overall vehicle efficiency. This is particularly significant in electric vehicles, where every component’s weight affects battery efficiency and range.
