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?

I think 3D printed engine parts are really cool. But it could be too little too late - now that governments are banning petrol cars in the near future. Perhaps they'll print electric motors.

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.

Could 10-20% lighter correspond to same weight but more displacement? Like a high RPM 2.5L I4 or high rpm 4L V6? Combine that with pneumatic valves and you could have 300HP all motor I4’s straight off the showroom floor.
mudyman1 Pred 4 dnevi
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.

im asking myself why this isnt practiced on every million dollar supercar in the last years?! you could order 3d printings of ceramic, aluminium and steel. not cheap, but existing. for example "protiq", ive seen em in a conrad brochure years ago.

toh-poh is the correct Greek pronunciation, but it's commonly ta-pa. other than that a good video. and forged pistons have more slap because of the alloy they use, not because of the way they're made.

Jayhere Pred 5 dnevi
I have to admit, I'm skeptical. Micro welding together a complete piston. It wasn't a matter of additional costs dumped on top. Or extra, additional processes the engine needs to be spec'd through. To them it was, let's leap into the discovery of new ground. To boldly go where no one has gone before. All car manufacturers have had huge flops. So, leave it to the Porsche engineers to think outside of the box. With the invention of 3D printing, it was a matter of time. Whether it initially started out as an innocent question, making an engineer go, hmmm; or just advanced engineering creative genius...it doesn't matter. Heat is the number one killer of engines. Example. A 3208 (V8) Caterpillar diesel engine is typically rated @ 210-214 hp in farm, heavy equipment and truck use. But the marine (boat) version has huge water coolers on each side, allowing them to pull 814 hp from one engine. All from adding massive cooling. And In this application from Porsche, they've added cooling. pump settings. Well done, Porsche. Well done.
