FDM Carbon Monoxide Filter Takes the Heat

When it comes to safety, the Joe Gibbs Racing design engineers don’t leave anything to chance. Thanks to a new SR-100 soluble support material used with Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) from Stratasys, they can now create complex carbon monoxide filter housings for their cars using polycarbonate (PC) material, which has a higher temperature rating than the previous material used.

“We are now very comfortable producing quality production parts using our Fortus system,” said Brian Levy, JGR design engineer. “We don’t worry about them melting or failing during a race.”
