This is totally cool!  Ford now offers downloadable print files for select Ford vehicles that you can use to print on your own 3-D printer. 

With consumer 3-D printers dropping below $2,000, Ford is reaching out to Ford fans around the world with another great idea. If you don't yet have a printer, you can also order a pre-printed model online directly from Ford by visiting 3d.ford.com. Most manufacturers and even local Custom shops use 3-D printers to fabricate prototypes of replacement or custom parts allowing them to quickly customize your ride. 

Ford has been using 3-D print models for their design process for some time. And now they are using the technology to reach out to Ford fans. According to Ford, although the available files and models are limited at this time other Ford vehicle files are on their way. A hint to Ford dealers, if they haven't already thought of it... buy a 3-D printer and start printing for your customers. I'd like the Ford Raptor please!

Although born in Boston, I spent most of my life in Southern California. When growing-up, everything I did revolved around cars. My first car was a '64 Comet thanks to my Sister. Favorite cars owned: '66 Mustang and '69 Camaro. My first engine build was a Ford 289 in high-school, which powered my '66 Stang through a high 12-second pass in the 1/4. I designed the engine based on what I learned from lots of automotive mags. Current toys are late models including an '07 Mustang GT/CS and '03 Cobra. Future project expects to be a '69 Camaro or '69 Mach I pro-touring build.

Be sure to say hi, when you see me at an event!
