We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
" Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication " Leonardo Da Vinci
The following project has being developed as a proof of concept for a new generation of high speed transportation vehicles
All areas that could affect it in reality had being addressed, making it not just another nice electronic model with a number of renders but a viable product in years to come
The final STL model its made of a number of components which are to be assembled, therefore giving the opportunity of manufacturing it in a variety of colors according to the different parts
While this model has being finished, new improvements will be made such as the manufacturing of the interiors and more detailed parts and components

During the next 20 years, many new forms of transportation will come into our lives, some of them will be geared towards resolving the issue of fuel consumption.for example
Electrical vehicles are here to stay and will become major players in the years to come
New highly advanced intelligent systems will let our vehicles be autonomous, taking the necessary decisions to make our travel and use safe and comfortable.
However the thrill of traveling will not be lost with dull and passive products
This is a proposal based on and intelligent highway induction system called Alfa 2040
The vehicle will be a Land Crusier capable of achieving 300 KM per Hour and will be stabilized by state of the art gyroscopic systems, taking the necessary energy from the road. Therefore eliminating the need to recharge
It will be lightweight using intelligent Nano materials that will be able to change and morph as needed making the unit for example more aerodynamic by changing the composition of its body to replicate the one found on the skin of sharks, Self-glow will be another feature in order to be able to be seeing at night or in bad weather conditions

Single monocoque construction based on intelligent Nano materials (Self adaptive)
Manufacturing method for body components Advanced Nano Tech Fusion Deposit Manufacturing (FDM)
Thanks to breakthroughs in nano materials, materials composed of incredibly tiny structures that are engineered at a scale of 1 to 100 nanometers. (To understand the scale we're talking about, imagine putting three to five atoms in a line. That would be one nanometer.) By moving atoms around, scientists can fashion materials that are incredibly strong yet light, and have other special abilities as well.
Some production cars, such as the Chevy Cobalt and the BMW M6, already have carbon nano fiber parts, but car makers could go a lot further. As EV World reported last December, researchers at Germany's [/url="http://tu-dresden.de/en"]Technical University of Dresden[/url] unveiled an experimental single-seat racing car, the E-Wolf e1, designed to show how light a car can be. The E-Wolf is made mostly from carbon nano fiber, which is five times as strong as steel but just a fraction of the weight. The vehicle weighs just 990 pounds (449 kilograms), and most of that weight is batteries (the body panels, frame, interior and other parts come in at just under 400 pounds/181.4 kilograms).

This project is part of the Grabcad/ makerbot Challenge
Data will be released as soon as it becomes avialable in stl format.to construct this product
The vehicle here shown and its components have being designed accordingly with the standards and steps used at major automotive and transportation firms.
A high degree of detail is being acheived as well as class A surfaces. Therefore it will be an interesting challenge for any user with and FDM or STL manufacturing capabilities
