The video by Oak Ridge National Laboratory on the Shelby Cobra that was 3D printed at the lab’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility in west Knox County has received more than 70,000 hits—an all-time record for ORNL videos.
The car and ORNL video were shown at last week’s Detroit Auto Show.
The Manufacturing Demonstration Facility is off Hardin Valley Road in west Knox County.
Here is the video:

ORNL’s newly printed 3D car will be showcased at the 2015 NAIAS in Detroit. This “laboratory on wheels” uses the Shelby Cobra design, celebrating the 50th anniversary of this model and honoring the first vehicle to be voted a national monument.
The Shelby was printed at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility at ORNL using the BAAM (Big Area Additive Manufacturing) machine and is intended as a “plug-n-play” laboratory on wheels. The Shelby will allow research and development of integrated components to be tested and enhanced in real time, improving the use of sustainable, digital manufacturing solutions in the automotive industry.
