3D Printed Motorcycle

Have you ever wanted to 3d print a motorcycle? These guys did. Check out the CarbonX by 3DXTECH. The 3d printed motorcycle is printed out of carbon fiber reinforced nylon.

More Additive Manufacturing Awesomeness

3D Printed Engine

Permatex has partnered with Polimotor LLC and its founder, Matti Holtzberg to help develop Polimotor 2, the next generation of polymer engines. The Polimotor 2 engine was designed with fiber reinforced polymer engine parts that are used in place of some of the traditional metal components, in order to reduce weight. Weight reduction is a critical factor in both racecars and everyday vehicles in order to maximize fuel economy and horsepower.

3D Printing In Metal

Mazak Hybrid CNC

Mazak has a hybrid CNC machine that can 3d print metal and it’s as awesome as it sounds. Designed and manufactured by Mazak, the VC-500 AM HYBRID Multi-Tasking machine combines full 5-axis capability and additive technology that adds layer to additive manufacturing.

  • Optimum Part Finish
  • High Accuracy

This hightech hybrid machine builds parts to near net shape up to 10 times faster than other similar systems. No need to waste expensive material and losing time by large amounts of metal from a solid stock using traditional machining methods. The compact 5-axis platform named the VC-500 AM is cost effective and accommodates a wide range of part sizes and shapes.
