THE 3D-PRINTED COBRA PROJECT BY AIRWOLF 3D

Follow along as we 3D print automotive tooling and build a car from the ground up.

3D PRINTED MUFFLER PROTOTYPE COBRAAirwolf was started for the purpose of making prototype parts for automobiles. However, before we could start building car parts, we started building 3D printers. Before we knew it, our days, nights, and weekends were entirely consumed with building, selling and servicing 3D printers. Fast forward seven (8) years and many thousands of 3D printers later, and we are circling back to focus again on our automotive ambitions.

Factory Five Roadster – Volume 5 3D Printing and Tooling Case Study: Steering Rack Stops

As we move along swiftly with project Project Factory Five Cobra, we’ve found another need for customization – steering rack stops for our manual steering rack.  In particular, the factory-supplied steering rack has too much travel. By that, we mean the wheels turn too much. While a tight turning radius is generally preferred, we want […]

Factory Five Roadster – Volume 4 – 3D Printing and Tooling Case Study: Timing Seal Installer

In this installment of Project Factory Five Cobra, we’ll be discussing replacing the timing cover seal on our Ford 302 small block engine. The timing cover seal is designed to seal the engine and keep oil from escaping. The seal has a metallic outer body and is pressed into the timing cover. As these seals […]

Factory Five Roadster – Volume 3 – 3D Printing Tooling: Ford Mustang Rear Axle Seal Installer

3d printing tooling Axle Seal Installer

Working on cars like Project Cobra can be very rewarding.  However, at times there will be a few hiccups along the way. Here we encountered such an issue replacing our rear axles.  As astute readers may know, in order to outfit project Cobra with vintage-style Halibrand wheels, we must convert the standard 4 lug mustang […]
