HP 3D PRINTER TOUGH ENOUGH TO MAKE BITS FOR YOUR BIKE.

Here at Europac3D there are a few of us who are keen cyclists and last week we thought we would set ourselves a little challenge. We wanted to test how tough is the new PA12 Nylon material from the HP Jet Fusion 3D printer; obviously we could look up the specs on the data sheet, but sometimes ‘the proof of the pudding is in the eating’ as some people might say.

We decided to see if we could replace the existing seat post and seat, including all of the associated assembly components, clamps, rails, bolts etc, and build it all in one piece with a little modification here and there.

The Future of 3D printing in the Automotive Industry

The automotive industry has been the driving force for 3D printing ever since its formation: so much so that the technology researcher SmarTech predicts that 3D printing in the automotive industry will be worth $1.1 billion a year by 2019.

3D printing is at the core of the car industry, and we’re close to having fully printed cars from the ground up. Its uses have even expanded to the movie industry – the Aston Martin that was riddled with bullets in the 2012 James Bond movie, Skyfall, was something you needn’t have cringed about: the model used for production was a 3D printed version.

So, how has 3D printing changed the face of the automotive industry already?
