Environmental issue has becoming more and more important for car manufacturers since the US government and European Union (EU) were substantially to contract the legislation in lowering the carbon emissions of the production of new vehicles. This drives car manufacturers to put more effort and resource in supporting R&D activities.

By continuous development and improvement of RP technologies in material properties, machine capability and production efficiency, RP&M technologies are increasingly utilized to produce scaled model and functional prototype for design verification and market validation.
