Garry Rogers Motorsport 3D Print Racing Car Parts with Markforged

Garry Rogers Motorsport’s success story with 3D printed racing car parts:

Garry Rogers Motorsport is Australia’s oldest motorsport team, securing wins in the nation’s Supercars Championship, Dunlop Super2 Series, and Bathurst 1000. The company has a team of nearly 40, with a focus on designing, building, and maintaining its own vehicles.

While their in-house workshop can do some manual machining and composites fabrication, they do not have CNC machining capability. The team would instead turn to third parties each time they needed several low-volume complex parts, but the turnaround time was not fast enough and was cost-prohibitive. The more time spent outsourcing parts, the slower the R&D process — meaning the team had less time to focus on finding ways to improve their cars’ performance — both on the race track and in the pit during pit stops.

In this case study, you’ll see how Garry Rogers Motorsport used Markforged 3D printing technology to make time and cost savings of 92%, while printing hundreds of end use parts fit for track use, as well as prototypes to aid in research and development.
