3D printing is the type of Additive manufacturing, has the potential to vastly accelerate innovation, compress supply chains, minimize materials and energy usage, and reduce waste. Originally developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1993. 3D printing technology forms the basis of Z Corporation's prototyping process. 3DP technology creates 3D physical prototypes by solidifying layers of deposited powder using a liquid binder. By definition 3DP is an extremely versatile and rapid process accommodating geometry of varying complexity in hundreds of different applications, and supporting many types of materials. Z Corp. pioneered the commercial use of 3DP technology, developing 3D printers that leading manufacturers use to produce early concept models and product prototypes. Utilizing 3DP technology, Z Corp. has developed 3D printers that operate at unprecedented speeds, extremely low costs, and within a broad range of applications. Alloy wheels are automobile wheels which are made from an alloy of carbon epoxy, E glass epoxy and S glass epoxy is tested individually or sometimes a mixture of both among them best one is chosen. Alloy wheels differ from normal steel wheels because of their lighter weight, which improves the steering and the speed of the car. Alloy wheels will reduce the unstrung weight of a vehicle compared to one fitted with standard steel wheels. Alloy is an excellent conductor of heat, improving heat dissipation from the bakes, reducing the risk of brake failure under demanding driving conditions. In this project, parametric model is done in Catia V5R20 and 3D printing is done in Idea maker software. B. Shushma | N. Aditya | B. Pravalika Reddy | D. Sindhuja | G.
