Mini goes 3D printing for custom interior

Mini goes 3D printing for custom interior

There has been much talk about 3D printing technology and its versatility and advantages and we were waiting for an OEM to adapt to it. Well, Mini seems to have realised its German roots and is one of the first car makers to adopt 3D printing and it doesn’t matter if it is limited to the customisation department.

You can now send your custom design to Mini and they will 3D print the trims that can be retrofitted in your existing latest generation Minis. While there is a wide variety of templates to choose from, you can also let your imagination run free with a fully customised design. The custom parts will arrive within a few weeks and all you need to do is to remove the easily detachable parts and replace them with the new ones.

The customisable parts include the dashboard and fender trims, laser-etched aluminium door sills and the LED puddle lamps to start with. Mini may expand the options list in due course of time. But as of now, getting your own name and signature on the dash-piece isn’t a piece of cake on the cumbersome Mini Yours Customized website. Of course, all of this comes at a cost and it goes north as the intricacies of the details start increasing.
