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?

This is a great example of 3D printing jettisoning us into the future. It's kind of ironic though that the future is EV. Will Porsche be printing pistons in 10 years? Probably not. By then there will be a powdered solution where you can just add water. LOL.

Given that the same approach can use other metals, I am thinking that it would be interesting to look into the idea for diesel pistons (where temps can easily get high enough to melt aluminum pistons, but are typically much slower reving so the weight may not be as big a deal)

We can't wait 10 years. Heck, we need it now, in all the cars that's selling right now. Then we can further downsize the engine to get the same power figure for greener environment. Or if you want power, just keep the engine size, and it can produce more powa baby!

The number of failures caused by undetected defects -- and their associated stress risers -- will easily offset any benefit to the topological optimization which is based on ideal manufacturing. Pass There's a rich sucker born every day.

Nothing impresses me with an individual's intellect more than an affected 'dumb-ass' accent and a backwards baseball cap. I suppose I can REALLY trust what this guy says...that's compared of course, to a person who comes out, treats me as if I can understand "normal" English, and explains their facts, without a costume. Gee, who would want to listen to a person like THAT??

so, what can we expect if porsche teams up with red bull power train and build the new power unit after honda leaving f1 ?? what about printing a turbo wheel that is 20% bigger with 80% of the weight? or embedding finer/better cooling channels in the block and cylinder head of the engine? cooling is already a huge problem in an f1 engine/car.

This is interesting technology, but I am wondering why they are concentrating on ICE when Europe is looking to ban all ICE new car sales over the coming years. I believe Norway is in 2025, UK in 2030 and almost all of Europe by 2040. Mercedes have basically stopped development on ICE engines, this seems like misdirected effort.
