Carbon Fiber Custom Fenders for an Autonomous Vehicle
- Made for Zoox.
- Mold Process: Laser Cut Cross Sections
- Layup Process: Infusion
- Zoox is a top secret autonomous vehicle company. We can’t say much more than that. Just Google them. They are cool. Keep an eye out for their self driving cars coming soon!
This project started from a single CAD file provided by Zoox.
Saving money is the name of the game! Instead of spending thousands to machine a mold, we laser cut cross sections to make a full 3D mold.
The final result looks just as good as a machined mold at half the price.
Of course every car has two fenders so we did it all twice… Here is a pair under vacuum.
The first trimmed and polished fender out of the mold. No clear coat needed when the layup turns out this well.
Full Set of 4 Fenders
This autonomous vehicle has no distinct front or back, so it actually needed 4 fenders!
