3D printing is quickly becoming a common manufacturing process thanks to it's inherently capable and cost-effective profile, which is seeing new creations like the BigRep 'NERA' motorbike be developed. Created by BigRep using several innovations by NOWLAB, the bike features a design that is completely 3D-printed except for the various electrical components. This includes the main frame, but also the airless bicycle tires that are made using PRO FLEX TPU to limit the need for continuous maintenance.
The BigRep 'NERA' motorbike prototype identifies what can be done to push vehicular manufacturing methods into the future to create modern, cost-effective alternatives to the existing options on our roads today. The angular design of the bike is stylistic, but could also help with aerodynamics for a more efficient riding experience.
