BMW Group’s 3D-printed convertible roof bracket won a 2018 Altair Enlighten Award within the Module category. The company’s first 3D-printed metal component used in a production series vehicle captured a 44% component weight savings on the 2018 i8 Roadster. The roof bracket was produced with selective laser melting (SLM) technology without needing any support structures.
