Wow in 5 mins I just thought of a dozen different designs that would be amazing, and equally terrible to keep clean, haha. Future will be awesome with design options no longer limited to machining. Should offer a custom designed rim service. Even at 30k each someone would sit down to design something for a one off on a Chiron or Pagoni.

Jesus Christ, itís a concept to show off the technology. Look with your eyes. Itís a P101 inside a P201, with a ton of seasoning on top.

The design of the wheel is a testament to how impressive the process is. However, that is an ugly wheel.

Amazing.

I think big enough machines already exist in aerospace but they are probably a) prohibitive to buy and b) all 110% backlogged with engine parts etc orders right now

Hope this continues progressing. Aluminum is so 1950ís

That's the least of your concerns, I don't think you can afford those wheels anyway.

Amazing technology

Amazing technology, very impressive concept wheel. How about some triple-split 5 spokes?

BINGO!

This is the first of it's kind, and with a completely different process. You're not going to have the same sort of designs made with a subtractive process compared to additive process.

Most importantly though, it's the first of it's kind, nobody else has done so. Our plan was to push the boundaries of where this industry is going.

More than enough people know we're capable of making a good looking wheel. That wasn't the exercise here of course, it was to be the first.

I think people complaining about cleaning brake dust are completely missing the point of the design. It's just meant to show the complexity that can be achieved with 3D printing.

I'm sure 3D printed wheels are some time away, its my understanding that the machine manufactures are a few years away from making a machine large enough to do something like this in one piece or even two. When it does happen though it should open a world of possibilities. I'm sure many manufactures will jump on the technology when it is available but I will only trust a company like HRE to responsibly and reliably implement this technology. Happy to see them experiment and learn about this tech early on.

Its nice what the technology brings but can you guys add more info as far as:
-Brinell hardness
-difference in torsion rigidity and flexural from forged wheels ( in % )
And stiffness too please, just to see the difference
Forgot the weight difference too, for rotation mass.
Thanks!
