Versatility and speed of 3D printing used as end parts for university racing team
“We have decided to bet on 3D printing because of its versatility and speed"
“We have decided to bet on 3D printing because of its versatility and speed. We are working on the development of an electric motorcycle, whose geometries differ greatly from those of a traditional motorcycle and 3D printing allowed us to make a completely customised fairing that perfectly adapted to the measurements of our vehicle. In terms of materials, the JCR work a very wide range, which allowed us to work with a plastic that worked well aerodynamically, was not excessively heavy, and worked well mechanically (being able to get to mechanise if necessary). Finally, the deadlines of our project force us to work with very fast solutions. In less than a week we received the pieces, compared to the months that are required to obtain the same pieces through a traditional process.”
