The 3D-printer for the first time printed a motorcycle - VIDEO PDF Print E-mail

Electronics giant TE Connectivity Rapid presented at the exhibition in 2015 - the world's first motorcycle, printed the 3D-printer and thus able to move around. Of course, it is nothing more than a demonstration, but it allows you to peek into the future of three-dimensional printing.

TE Connectivity has taken over the role model motorcycle Harley-Davidson Softail and reproduced its three-dimensional structure on the printer, the print spending about 1000 hours and 25 000 dollars. The main difference between the 180-pound bike from its predecessors - his ability to move independently. True, not a quick and far. While the technology does not allow the use of 3D-printing metal and rubber composites. Motor, battery, brakes, chain drive and had to take a bus ready: in the case of the power plant is an electric motor turned a modest 750 W (1 hp..). He is able to disperse the bike riders with two adults up to 24 km / h, but the stock battery lasts only for demonstration rides.

However, 3D-bike, of course, was not built for speed records. The main achievement of TE Connectivity - absolutely unique printing bearings made of ABS plastic, for which for the most part has been started this project. On the test bench in conditions simulating a real ride, they can withstand up to 2000 rev / min and behave no worse than usual. Given that the first instance of "printing" the bike was so fragile that collapsed during transport, there is great progress. TE Connectivity has so far refrained from loud promises, but it is now clear that the 3D-press successfully overcomes its "childhood diseases" one after the other.
