NERA 3D Printed Electrical Motorcycle



Project description:
BigRep's NOWlab built an electric motorcycle that, excluding the electrical components, consists purely of 3D printed parts. The e-bike, NERA, was designed by Marco Mattia Cristofori and Maximilian Sedlak and NOWlab's co-founder, Daniel B√ľning, directed the project. As Mashable has previously reported, NERA is not for sale, but it is a use case that highlights what can be achieved using BigRep's large-scale 3D printers and demonstrates the current state-of-the-art in additive manufacturing.
