Has anyone had experience using the 3D printers/rapid prototypers? What I'm thinking is I could buy the 3D .obj model of the Karma and then upload that to one of these 3D prototyping companies to have it made (should cost about $300-400). Would be curious if anyone on this forum has experience with this or has done this before.
Why would Fisker give out their IP, so everyone can copy and modify?
We're not talking about the EVer drivetrain here just just the external design of the Karma ... same as Ferrari, Lambo, Aston Martin, Audi etc.... It's done all the time. Check out Maisto's catalog: http://www.maisto.com/index.php?option=com_wrapper&view=wrapper&Itemid=1 39
