Making Parts In-House for Carts, Kiosks, and e-Vehicles

A 3D printer is an excellent tool for us to have in-house. It allows our design team to evolve solutions from ideation to reality.

The Desert Mountain electric vehicle has a removable drop shelf. Our engineering team designed this custom part to hold the shelf in place when stored away. Without it, the shelf would slide as the vehicle moved. If we were to purchase this part, we would have to go through the process from sourcing to shipping, which can be limited by availability and resources. The 3D printer allowed us to create a custom part that perfectly fits within hours, saving us time and money.
