Customers Can Now Shop The Ford One-Stop 3D Car Store Online!
BRIGHTON, Mich. - We do not joke around here when we talk about how Ford Motor Company is always innovating and coming up with the most creative ways to make things easier, and a lot more fun, for their customers. Customers can now shop the Ford one-stop 3D car store online, which enables consumers to download digital images and printable files of Ford Motor Co. vehicles at the FIRST EVER automaker-licensed, one-stop 3D shop online.
The online Ford 3D Store offers printable files to its visitors that include the F-150 Raptor, Shelby GT350R, Focus ST and Fiesta ST with more models coming later in the year. Mark Bentley, licensing manager for Ford Global Brand Licensing stated that "3D printing at home is a growing trend, and it makes sense for us to offer our customers a chance to make their own 3D Ford models." Ford currently uses 3D printing every day to quickly prototype parts, and now Ford wants to share that fun and excitement with their loyal fan base.
Sales of 3D printers are currently expected to exceed 1 million units by 2018, compared to the 44,000 sold annually in 2014. 3D printed models are available for order at 1/32nd scale in plastic, however going and purchasing a digital image allows customers to have a Ford model 3D printed to the scale they choose as well as with the material the desire. These can come from their own printer or an outside source, and professional printers can create a model in materials ranging from a soft plastic to sandstone and other materials.
Customers can now shop the Ford one-stop 3D car store online, and when a buyer purchases a model or digital design online, he or she must register with the site itself to ensure and agree that the item will not be used commercially. If you would like to talk more about any of the great ways Ford is always on the cusp of innovation, feel free to drop by! We would love to show you any of our new and used Ford models!
