Big Dog Productions and Jay Leno Team With Stratasys to Engineer High Performance 3D Printed Parts for Classic Autos. Host of “Jay Leno’s Garage” in Collaboration to Use FDM Technology for 3D Printed Parts on Demand for Nearly 300 Amazing Vehicles

Stratasys announced it is collaborating with Jay Leno’s Big Dog Garage and Big Dog Productions to provide access to Stratasys FDM 3D printers that keep the host’s unique collection of extreme and classic vehicles in top running condition with custom parts. This collaboration builds on Stratasys’ Performance Partner Program, launched last month, to empower those operating in the extreme worlds of competitive auto racing, classic vehicles, and next-generation aviation with the latest additive manufacturing technologies.


Legendary comedian and former “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno leads Big Dog Productions with more than two decades of production experience – including the highly rated show, “Jay Leno’s Garage” on CNBC. Jay Leno’s Garage and Big Dog Productions tap into the power of 3D printing to provide digital inventory that helps road test, refurbish, or retrofit everything from classic vehicles to super cars. Among his collection are 169 cars and 117 motorcycles, including a 1966 Oldsmobile Tornado, 1906 Stanley Steamer Vanderbilt Cup Racer, and a several-thousand-pound tank car powered by a tank engine.


Jay Leno and Big Dog Garage now have access to core Stratasys additive manufacturing solutions – including the Fortus 450mc 3D Printer with FDM Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber. The machine makes it simple to produce complex manufacturing prototypes and finished parts efficiently and effectively using high-performance carbon fiber material. Big Dog has already been collaborating with Stratasys Direct Manufacturing for 3D printed parts-on-demand for nearly 10 years.



In conjunction with the extended Stratasys team, Leno has created some of the most cutting-edge 3D printed prototypes and custom parts for the automotive collection. This includes re-creating parts that simply no longer exist or would be far too time-consuming and expensive to create using traditional processes.
