Cadillac Blackwing models will use 3D-printed parts, like this shifter medallion
When Cadillac debuts the highest-performance Blackwing variants of its CT4-V and CT5-V sedans next year, they’ll be some of the only cars on the market available with a manual transmission. They’ll also be the first Cadillacs to use functional 3D printed parts in production. General Motors has touted its 3D printing prowess as it tested parts in its successful racing ventures on and off-road, but until now, those parts have been experimental. The 2021 Blackwing models will use an electrical harness bracket and a pair of HVAC ducts that have been 3D-printed and will highlight the milestone with a 3D-printed medallion on the shifter.
