The Ford Motor Company has launched the Ford 3D Store, allowing auto fans to download digital images of Ford vehicles for 3D printing.

The first-ever, automaker-authorized one-stop online store for 3D-printable vehicle files allows customers to make their own models of Ford vehicles in the size and material they desire from a growing library of more than 1,000 Ford images.

“3D printing at home is a growing trend, and it makes sense for us to offer our customers a chance to make their own 3D Ford models,” says Mark Bentley, licensing manager, Ford Global Brand Licensing. “At Ford, we’re using 3D printing every day to rapidly prototype parts, and now we want to share that fun with our fans.”

The new online store, which features models such as the Ford GT, F-150 Raptor, Shelby GT350R, Focus ST and Fiesta ST, is powered by TurboSquid.
