The fabrication of 3D printed products is based on the design files. There are some details and features that always need to be taken into account when designing a 3D printing part, but the best result varies depending on the different 3D printing services.Wonder Tech have a wide range of process and materials to choose from, each with its own benefits and applications.
This is not the first time BMW has entered into a relationship with 3D printing, 3D scanning technology. A few months ago, they used the technology to build thumb supports for workers to relieve repetitive motion stress on their joints while assembling and finishing BMW vehicles. The type of stress relief in the latest project involving 3D printing isn’t all that important to BMW’s workers, but it isn’t to those interested in driving a super-smooth BMW R9T motorcycle.
The BMW R nine T was born to commemorate the 90th anniversary of BMW Motorrad and it was specially designed for customization. At the heart of the design is reference to the historic model of the R32, the “Coffee Racer”, which was the first model to be produced. Ricardo Medrano, owner of Johnnie Wash, recognized the market for this type of customizable motorcycle for a Brazilian clientele. This is an era of significant expansion in the field of customization in Brazil, especially among the elite, who are looking for new ways to present their identity and stand out when buying luxury goods. This fascination with customization, coupled with this focus from motorcycle producers, has naturally made it possible to handle it through 3D printing.
This spectacular motorcycle is shown in a video posted on Vimeo. The custom presentation of the motorcycle was created using 3D printing technology, with the custom parts being printed in three days. An interviewer from the Brazilian network Bandsports’ show Momento Moto interviewed Medrano about the hardest part of working with such an innovative project:
“The hardest part was working with new technologies and materials. It was three days of intense work, and learning the process itself was definitely the most complicated part.”
The design process starts with simplifying the design of each part and then moves on to creating the more complex 3D models in Solidworks needed to print the part. To ensure a perfect fit between the motorcycle and the custom parts, every part of the motorcycle was scanned in 3D using a 3D scanner. When the parts are ready to print, they are sent to the Fortus 900mc for production. After printing layer by layer, they are finished and painted.
The original model Medrano started with shortened the subframe, added a sport air filter, pulled the handlebars back 1¼ inches, dropped the mirrors and, of course, the fancy paint job. On top of that, swapping out the red leather seats and adding a 14-horsepower engine with power chips, the bike retails for around $86,000.
However, Medrano isn’t prepared to stop here. He went on to create a more complex model that incorporated all the innovations in the first upgrade, but somehow managed to pack more “movement” into an already powerful creation. The tail has been redesigned to reduce friction and the handlebars have been lowered. Further modifications include:
- · Exhaust with genuine Duo sport spring attachment
- · Back-floating optical components
- · Revised intake system with individual sport filters for each cylinder
- · Relocated battery box and control module below the water tank
- · New engine system with chip power designed to generate more 18 power
Priced at just over $100,000, this ultra-detailed piece retains its functionality in pristine condition. It also means that owners don’t have to buy a whole new motorcycle if they want a new look. Now, with his mastery of 3D printing technology, Medrano can create custom looks for motorcycles as often as the client desires.
In Brazil, motorcycles are sold through Eurobike. Andre Accioly, General Manager of Eurobike Motorcycles, proudly states that they were the first dealership in the country to carry out such customizations, and that they will continue to stay at the forefront of technology in order to offer their customers the latest possibilities.

Dimensional Accuracy In 3D Printing
The dimensional accuracy refers to how accurate the size and form of the printed part are compared to that in the CAD design. Factors that affect dimensional accuracy include material quality, equipment, post-processing, and more. Dimensional tolerance, shrinkage, and support requirements are three key elements to measuring dimensional accuracy. Below are the dimensional tolerance of different 3D processes.
|FDM dimensional tolerance||prototyping (desktop):±0.5% (lower limit:±0.5 mm), industrial:±0.15% (lower limit:±0.2 mm)|
|SLA dimensional tolerance||prototyping (desktop):±0.5% (lower limit:±0.10 mm) industrial:±0.15% (lower limit:±0.01 mm)|
|SLS/MJF dimensional tolerance||±0.3% (lower limit:±0.3 mm)|
Layer Height In 3D Printing
Layer height is a measurement of the amount of material extruded by the printer’s nozzle for each layer of your part. It is measured in microns or millimeters. The selection of layer height is important for some 3D printing technologies, such as SLA and FDM. Below are the typically applied layer height for different processes.
- – FDM: 50 – 400 μm
- – SLA: 25 – 100 μm
- – SLS: 80 – 120 μm
- – MJF: 80 μm
- – DMLS/SLM: 30 – 50 μm
3D printing and prototyping have advanced development in recent years. With these improvements, metal 3D printing has become a possibility. Metal 3D printing is used in a variety of sectors. Companies that use metal 3D printing are discovering that 3D printing complicated metal parts in low quantities is considerably more cost-effective than traditional methods of production. Metal 3D printed items are cheaper and have a wider range of material alternatives. Aluminum is a popular metal for 3D printing since it is both sturdy and lightweight. Steel is another extensively used material that is perfect for industrial applications due to its strength, good polish, and temperature tolerance. Metal 3D printing is utilized in a wide range of sectors for a variety of purposes. Functional prototypes, end-use parts, Jigs, tooling, and fixtures are some of the applications.
