Engineers at Aalborg University printed this functioning bicycle frame in one go on the BigRep ONE! Learn all about this and many other BigRep industry success stories here: https://goo.gl/j4cNBR.
Civil Engineers at the Aalborg university wanted to see if a printed bicycle frame would have the structural properties required to perform its load-bearing functions. The BigRep ONE (https://goo.gl/YeEYvc), created to precision-print large, complex, engineered components, was the ideal machine for the job. After production the frame was built up into a full bike and has been successfully tested.
In the Film:
• See the consistency and accuracy with which the BigRep ONE reproduced this familiar load-bearing engineered component
