Siemens and Local Motors Partner

The collaboration is working to advance large-scale additive manufacturing for cars.

Siemens and Local Motors have partnered to advance manufacturing and optimize development of 3D printing cars. The collaboration will combine Siemens’ PLM (product lifecycle management) software and Local Motors’ expertise with additive manufacturing.

The companies will work towards establishing digital twins and also expand the use of Solid Edge, NX and Fibersim portfolios.

“We have been partners with Siemens since 2011, and today’s announcement takes that partnership to the next level by enabling our community of co-creators to innovate even faster,” said Jay Rogers, CEO of Local Motors.“We developed the world’s first co-created vehicle and 3D-printed car, and now our LM Labs program is providing the world’s makers with a way – both online and offline – to create new technologies to advance the future of transportation. Open to anyone, LM Labs helps brilliant minds create new technologies the world needs. While our primary focus is on developing vehicles, LM Labs is a place where the community can advance any technology.”
