3D printed tech to steer Bloodhound Super-Sonic Car

Super police dog-
Sonic Motor unveiled this week and the public will be able to see many of the innovative technologies used in its construction.
Several surface panels will be removed so that one can view the interior and understand the works needed to make the car travel faster than a mile/hour.
Given the custom nature of the Hound, many of its components are made using 3D printing technology.
This even includes the steering wheel.
More than 3,500 custom made
Manufacturing parts, for the Hound project, the use of traditional mass production methods in many cases can be very expensive and wasteful.
The complex design of the car also requires difficult shape --
Sometimes impossible.
Make with traditional tools.
Therefore, the designers of the car will always make good use of \"additive manufacturing \".
The steering wheel is a good example because its shape is unique.
Its outline is precisely designed to match the hand of the driver Andy Green.
\"We \'ve actually scanned Andy\'s hand shape and it will take a very long time if I process it,\" said Connor lager, head of blood hound parts.
3D printing allows rapid prototyping to find the \"building\" that is most comfortable for the RAF wing commander and to test the performance of the \"growing\" structure.

The task of Edge is to produce the steering wheel.
Its final version will be made from titanium in the next few weeks, and it will take three to four days to produce at a factory in Gloucester.
Renishaw uses a powerful laser to bring Micron-
Zoom the metal particles together to create a steering control layer-by-layer.
The same is true of the titanium nose tip on the blood hound, which will experience a huge aerodynamic load of Grade 13. 5m-

Other printed parts include an auxiliary air inlet located on both sides of the car, right behind the carbon emissions
The fiber optic unit Andy Green will be sitting on.
These features deliver air to the rear of the vehicle and cool the Jaguar V8 engine and pump, which will drive the \"high-Test Peroxide \"(
HTP, a powerful blood oxygen meter)
Into the Hound\'s rocket system.
It\'s not titanium, it\'s carbon fiber.
They are produced by Aylesbury\'s Graphite Additive Manufacturing Company, which uses a technology called selective laser sintering.
This combines a single layer of carbon to form a very expensive and time-consuming shape.
Produced from actors.
The sensor holder is then made of powder ceramic.
Bloodhound is equipped with 500 sensors for monitoring parameters such as air pressure, Chassis bending and component movement.
This number is more than double the number of sensors installed on F1 cars.
Mr. La Grue stressed that component printing is only used where the design team sees the real benefits, not just for it.
\"Additives are great for one person --
Closed, complex parts, so for blood hounds, this is a very good way to save tools and machine maintenance, but we won\'t use it if the properties in the components don\'t exist.
He gave an exquisite example.
Impellors of the shape inside the oxygen pump.
\"It takes five weeks for Each impellor to process, and we can grow one in a week, so it\'s certainly attractive to try to grow them.
But we don\'t have enough confidence.
How porous is the growing titanium material and what this means for its interaction with HTP, and how strong it is in understanding the different interfaces in the growing ingredients.
\"The Hound has now completed more than 95%.
It shows to the public in the form of a sale
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the expo will be held at the East winter garden venue at London\'s Canary Wharf.
The engineer will then bring the vehicle back to the design headquarters in Bristol to integrate the remaining components.
A series of pilot flights are planned at Newquay Cornwall Airport, most likely in early 2016, before the Hakskeen Pan, where the car was packed and flew to Cape North, began an attack on world land speed records.
The current speed is 763mph (1,228km/h)

The goal of the Hound is to push the mark to more than 1 000 miles per hour (1,610km/h). Jonathan. Amos-INTERNET@bbc. co.
