PRI 2017

December 7-9 the 30th annual Performance Racing Industry show took place in the heart of downtown Indianapolis at the Indiana Convention Center. Attendees at this show discover the latest in machining and automotive technology as more than 100 manufacturers and over 1100 companies total showcase their latest developments in auto racing technology. 

Ryan Seddelmeyer, Alyssa Corral, Dave Rittmeyer and Brandon Fourman all represented HPI in Indy networking with existing customers as well as potential customers. Custom castings for automotive projects is where Hoosier shines at this show. The possibilities potential customers think of when they think about incorporating 3D printed sand into their restorations, remodels and other projects are endless.Hoosier’s booth featured 3D printed sand cores and molds as well as some 2 stroke cylinders, cylinder heads, a mini v8 engine block and of course, our mini pouring man casting that goes with us to every show.


This year for the first time PRI had a Featured Products Showcase. Hoosier entered the mini v8 engine block casting as well as the 3D printed sand mold that it was cast from. Attendees saw the pieces in the showcase and came to HPI’s booth to ask questions and inquire about their future projects making the entry into the featured products showcase a huge success.


Last year during PRI 2016, Hoosier met an entrepreneur looking for an FDM printed prototype. HPI took on his project with their Stratasys Fortus plastic printer and helped get his idea off the ground. This year at PRI 2017, he came back with 2 Never Measures in hand as gifts for HPI employees as well as the exciting news that he officially launched and started selling them last week. HPI is currently working with the crew at Never Measure on an article for a more in depth look about how this project came to life. Until then read more about the Never Measure here.
