Before using the wind tunnel, our model makers must adapt all of the parts created with CAD to a scale model. In most cases, this production takes place using stereolithography. The components manufactured by CAD exactly replicate the behavior of their real corresponding parts.

Since 2001, Dallara has been equipped with a highly specialized rapid prototyping department, resulting in a reduction of test time, an increase in production, and an optimization of costs. This department allows the company to construct model components with maximum precision in minimum time.

Literally, “Stereolithography” means “three-dimensional printing.” Using a laser, the machine solidifies layers of photosensitive liquid resin until a predetermined shape has been filled.

This process is carried out in the following steps. First, the three-dimensional model created in CAD is transmitted to a rapid prototyping machine, which prepares and “slices” this model into multiple layers.

A laser solidifies layer by layer in a tank of photosensitive liquid resin until the component is complete. The finished product does not need dies or trimmings, drastically shortening the manufacturing time.

In the fast-paced world of motorsports, saving time is crucial. It allows for the testing of many more pieces, always guaranteeing optimal development for every component.

The Dallara department is equipped with 7 machines, each with an operating volume of 500x500x600 mm. To optimize production costs, we use two types of resins: a ceramic-based type (DSM Samos Nanotool®) for the most critical structural components and a pure epoxy type (DSM Somos GP Plus®).
