How to design a 3D printed bike: Which material for which application?
Have you heard of our Sculpteo Bike Project? For CES 2017, we created the first ever fully functional digitally manufactured bike: 70% of its parts were produced by our 3D printing and laser cutting service. Then, to prove it was actually functional, the two designers of the bike, Piotr Widelka and Alexandre d’Orsetti, went on a long trip from Las Vegas to San Francisco, and rode the bike on over 1000 km! This trip was documented on... Read More
Benefits of 3D Printing & additive manufaturing: Small Batch Production
In this week’s 3D printing benefits series, let’s talk about the small batch production benefits. Not only reserved for traditional manufacturing techniques, it is now possible to integrate additive manufacturing into the production of parts. Small batches are often more interesting to manufacture with 3D printing than with traditional methods (e.g. injection molding). This blog post is part of ‘Benefits of 3D Printing’ Series,...
