3D-printing technology and Green cars have become very popular today. The problem is that while these cars exist, the actual manufacturing is different. Automotive designer Kevin Czinger, founder and CEO of Divergent Microfactories has revolutionized the manufacturers to produce lighter and stronger parts, saving time and money with the help of 3D-printer.

The new car, named Blade has a unique chassis. Divergent claims the Blade's chassis is up to 90 per cent lighter than most cars. The company developed a 3D-printed aluminum Node joint, which connects pieces of carbon fiber tubing to make up the car’s frame. This makes the manufacturing process faster and also needs less space than traditional car assembly. As a result, we have a car weighing about 635 kg.

Blade boasts a 700-horsepower bi-fuel engine (powered by either compressed natural gas or gasoline) and can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in about two seconds. There's no pricing as yet, but Divergent plans to produce a few more of these. The company hopes other firms will use its technology to create custom cars.
