Porsche is designing super light pistons which are only possible by means of 3D printing. These light pistons will add a claimed 30 horsepower, but how can something a simple as a piston add that much mo' powah babeh? And why does it require 3D printing?

  • Thank you! You are a very good teacher at explaining this process in a easy to understand explanation of exact facts.

  • So these piston will be common about two years after we all stop buying gas powered vehicles then.

  • Mainly because F=ma, The mass [*weight*] of the piston works against the engine performance - ideally, a piston that weighs nothing - but can handle the combustion force is ideal. With 3D printing you can remove internal volume - lightening the piston - and keeping the strength.....Think of a bridge - the trusses bear the weight - a solid metal bridge would be loaded down by it's own weight...this is problem with internally solid pistons and why machine pistons are drilled out. This is a big deal...

  • Neat .. engineering overkill where traditional manufacturing methods and materials have not failed in actual use cases. Perfect for autophiles/audiophiles who can now exclaim "my car has 3D printed pistons!" along with "my amp's power transformer has pure silver windings!". This isn't an advance .. it's a technology demonstration ...

  • bandaids do kind of have a shelf life, because at some point the wrapper fails and lets air in to what is supposed to be a sterile environment. and not only is it no longer sterile, but that air also allows the bandaid material to grow brittle, especially if it's that plasticy type stuff, and the adhesive can weaken. i've seen all these things myself, so i know first hand that they do happen. and this was actual bandaid brand that the wrappers came apart from itself, inside of a little container.

  • Pistons you can get in graphite since 10 years, they had much better heat characteristics. If you have a old Car and cant find any Pistons,they make then in graphite and make more Horsepower.This 3 D Printing is good for Racingcars, with small Numbers.

  • Porsche already announced that they will go full electric except for the 911. Therefore I don't expect any big changes in the engine anymore. Maybe there will be a $400k special limited edition of 100 cars of the 911 with this pistons but I don't see it for mass production.
