3D-printed bicycle frame gains international recognition

When it comes to explaining technically highly complex relationships, simple examples often help to illustrate them. The VMR service provider from Mönchweiler near Villingen-Schwenningen in Baden, Germany, also did the same. In order to demonstrate the advantages of 3D printing and its specially required design method, a 3D-printed bicycle frame made of aluminium was produced for a trade fair participation. The probably first printed bicycle frame made of light metal, which was designed and printed in Baden-Württemberg, was to serve as an eye-catcher for VMR's appearance at Europe's largest 3D printing fair, FormNext (19.-22.11.2019) in Frankfurt.
