Sculpteo 3-D Printed Bike

By George Harding

CES 2017 showed many 3-D printers and the amazing array of objects that can be created from these devices.

The most amazing object I saw was a bicycle created mostly by a 3-D printer by Sculpteo. The company says that 70% of the parts were made from a printer in less than two months at a cost of $4,200.

To prove the viability of the bike, it will  be ridden 579 miles from Las Vegas to San Francisco beginning in June, 2017. This will be an amazing  trip and will not only show viability but also durability of both bile and riders.

The riders will are the designers of the bike, who laid out the design, engineering and manufacture of this unique product of a 3-D printer.

Sculpteo states that it is the leading force in online 3-D printing today. The digital bike shows Sculpteo’s expertise in metal and polymer 3-D printing and laser cutting.

Sculpteo is based in Paris and San Francisco
