“It’s about the process, not the product.”
The Strati comes to life in 3 phases...
- The Print Phase is also the “additive manufacturing” phase and takes about 44 hours for the car to be printed in one piece.
- The Refine phase uses “subtractive manufacturing” or milling. It takes about a day to mill the vehicle to tolerance.
- The Finish Phase uses “rapid assembly” to add the vehicle component in order to complete the vehicle. This final phase takes less than a day from start to finish.
