According to some configurations of the present disclosure, an alloy may include a composition that includes magnesium (Mg) that is approximately 5 to 12% by weight of the composition; manganese (Mn) that is approximately 0.1 to 2% by weight of the composition; and silicon (Si) that is approximately 0.3 to 3% by weight of the composition; and aluminum (Al) that is a balance of the composition. In one configuration, the composition may further include one or more of iron (Fe), titanium (Ti), zirconium (Zr), chromium (Cr), and/or yttrium (Y).
Systems and methods for additive manufacturing of vehicles are provided. An additive manufacturing apparatus can include a printer that additively manufactures structures for a vehicle, and multiple analysis components. Each analysis component can receive information based on a design model of the vehicle and analyze the information based on an analysis factor. Each analysis component analyzes the information based on a different analysis factor. An integrator can receives the analyzed information from the analysis components, update the design model based on the analyzed information, and determine whether the updated design model satisfies criteria. If the updated design model satisfies the criteria, the integrator determines printing instructions for the printer to print one or more structures of the vehicle based on the updated design model, and if the updated design model does not satisfy the criteria, the integrator sends information based on the updated design model to the analysis components.
