Alstom is currently in the process of designing and building the new, state-of-the-art Amtrak Acela fleet. These more efficient trains will provide high-speed service, modern amenities and nearly 25 percent more seats. For the prototype of the power car, which is the first car and driver’s station, Alstom enlisted 3DP to provide them with 3D-printed panels that would be integrated into the full-scale mock-up of the driver desk and cabin lining. These panels represented the complex shapes, colors, and finishes of the final cockpit design. They included nine printed panels that were ready for painting and would be delivered in a very short time frame.
