3D printing is the latest go-to technology for big motorcycle manufacturers. In the past, we’ve seen BMW Motorrad uses 3D printing to generate full chassis for its S1000RR. Now, these guys are 3D printing parts for the International GS Trophy.
BMW is 3D printing fairing panels and radiator covers for all the participants of the International GS Trophy. The radiator covers are not just simple units but have the name of the participant along with its start number. We can also see an image in which a full description has been 3D printed on a radiator cover.
And these 3D printed parts are not just of any plastic material but are of aluminum to make sure that they last throughout the 2,350 km of rally course. Each participant at the International GS Trophy will get its 3D printed radiator cover/fairing panel as a souvenir.
Well, BMW is using 3D printing technology for what it pleases, but it is just amazing to see how far this technology has come, and how it has changed the manufacturing industry.
