How ironic. Not that this is not new technology....most all vehicle panels and uni bodies are stamped. Along with 100s of other parts in ANY vehicle.
But moreso, just hilarious that a vehicle that looks like the product of a high school sheet metal class or a very nice rendering of a Pinewood Derby Car, that the body panels could literally be made with a brake and a shear, is garnering the fascination of ole Elon8.1!

Now, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that the machine is going to be used for the Cybertruck body.

This is not surprising considering that Tesla already disclosed that the Cybertruck is going to be built using a stainless-steel exoskeleton body that was going to require a new level of casting capability.

I want someone who wants to play Hullk to show us how he can cast a 3mm stainless steel panel nearly 20 feet long with a brake and shear.[emoticon]

Or, he can use several brakes and, surely, he only needs one shear -- and he can take as long as he wants to cut it into shape of the Cybertruck or Pinewood Derby Car if he wants to simplify it.[emoticon]

I won’t expound on how silly the first statement seems, ok, I will. You are insinuating that the body panels, made of stainless (idk what grade, doesn’t matter though) are roughly 400% thicker than the average auto body panel (hood, fender, roof, etc skin)?
Not to mention you must be referencing very small manually operated sheet metal tools?

To the second part, yes my response you’re referencing was largely tongue in cheek in reference to the fact that there doesn’t appear to even be a single curved panel and not even any compound bends or breaks in the skin. I’m fully aware that a press like that is or will be used to form the structure of the car body.

How’s that 2% workin out these days? I’m not seein it, tbh.

Although I’ve heard drinkin the Koolaid helps with this, of which you have decidedly drank a lot of. Maybe not enough though….so keep it up. It may help, someday…

Awww not you too…
First Yosemite, then 8.1, now you?

Man at least Reisender owns a Tesla. Heck he even tows his camper with it. And is knowledgeable and contributory in a positive sense. (Actually he’s a pioneer of sorts in the EV/RV game, while you clowns just manifest as wanna be’s)
