If someone had all the information, and began 3D Printing a Cybertruck today, who would finish first: The real Tesla Cybertruck, or the 3D Printed Cybertruck? Would it be close? Why or why not?

“3D Printed” How? There are a lot of different 3d printing technologies and they all work at different speeds.

Even if you ignore the wiring, batteries, and computers which cannot be 3d printed at all. I’m not sure any of them would allow printing a functioning Cybertruck. I’d pretty sure nothing lets you 3d print in stainless steel. You could machine a lot of the metal parts, but then you’d need massive blocks of stainless which nobody can manufacture right now.

I was just playing around Ogre. Haha... something to release some stress, but who knows... someone might have a huge 3D printer - don't ask, and you'll never know. Let's sit back, laugh, and see. Have a great day! peace

I think they are 3D printing houses out of concrete now. Maybe 3D print a statue of the CT and drop it in front of the Tera Factory?

Yes, I saw some 3D printers working on a home. So, why not the Cybertruck. I mean, it could happen! haha

If we get to where 3D printing metals is easy I guarantee people will have closets full of printers spitting out quarters 24/7.

Maybe someone will make a concrete Cybertruck someday...

Yes, stainless steel can be 3d printed now.

https://all3dp.com/2/stainless-steel-3d-printer-how-to-3d-print-stainless-steel/

I remember a project a few years back where two robots were used to 3d print a stainless steel bridge in a park in the Netherlands or Belgium or something. It took them most of a year to do it.
