The luxury carmaker, Porsche has introduced a 3D-printed body form full-bucket seat in which the seat and the backrest cushions are partly produced by a 3D Printer.
An alternative to conventional bucket seat upholstery, the personalised seat will be offered in three firmness levels (hard, medium or soft) follows the design principles and rationale of driver-specific seat fitting customary in professional motorsports, informs the release.
Porsche claims this seat comes with a lower weight, improved comfort, and passive climate control.
“The seat is the interface between the human and the vehicle and is thus important for precise, sporty handling. That’s why personalised seat shells customised for the driver have been standard in race cars for a long time now,” says Michael Steiner, R&D, Porsche.
