In this modern era, we must look at many things of technology. Start form drawing in the stone, writing use bulu and ink, tick the text with tick mechine, until first computer launched and now there is a laptop or note book we can text something in one of office in here and can print of the text wit our needs.
BigRep is large – scale 3D manufacturer based in germany has created a fully functional electric motorbike. Its call NERA, the meaning of NERA isnew era the prototype e-motorbike was showcased from this years from next exhibition. Designer of this printed motorcycle is NowLab. It is from company’s innovation lab and consultancy service. In there, have a team of experts at Bigrep Providing additive manufacturing consultancy service to its client
“Nera illustrates the massive benefits that 3D-printing offers for the production of end-use parts, particularly for batch sizes between lot size one [small quantities manufactured in a single production run] to small series, by reducing lead times and costs, optimising supply chains and limiting dependency on supplier networks,” said NOWlab co-founder Daniel Büning.
“In building Nera, the engineers didn’t simply adapt existing motorcycle designs, but instead envisioned a bike for large-format FFF technology, setting a benchmark for truly creative design; breaking the limits of traditional mechanical engineering,” said NOWlab
Before NERA made, like a clothes and anything else, it must have a designer. NERA bike was designed by TWO people from NOWlab experts. Product designer Mattia Cristofori as an Applications Specialist and Maximilian Seldak as a Parametric Designer. For the concept and direction set by Daniel Buning as a co – founder and managing director of NOThis bike made by 3D – printed using the fused filament fabrication (FFF) process.
Made in Germany in 1894, the motorbike was powered by a 1489cc four-stroke twin engine. It produced 2.5 hp at 240rpm and had a maximum speed of 45 km/h (28 mph)By using increasingly efficient 3D-printing methods, BigRep comes up with outstanding novelties, from furniture to vehicles, to robotics, at reduced production times and costs. It is made of 15 components in total for you 3D printing nerds, BigRep’s equipment used ProHT, ProFLEX, PETH, and PLA filaments with a 0.6-1mm nozzle at a layer height of 0.4-0.6mm. That includes the 3D-printed tires which are designed with a custom tread and unique matrix construction to make them road-friendly. The vehicle measures 190 cm x 90 cm x 55 cm and the largest measuring 120 cm x 45 cm x 20 cm. The manually engine that it need just a electronics like a battery and the engine the rims and airless tires is made by printed. All parts of NERA bike are 3D printed until the flexible bumper (instead of suspension). The weight for this motorcycle is aproximately 60 Kg (includeing electric motor, battery and all components). It cost about £2,000 ($2,600) or in Indonesian rupiah is Rp36.762.700,- to make one motorcycle like that. We can get two ordinary motorcycle or regular matic motorcycle. But for the unique design and models that have never existed in the world, it’s the equivalent for a cool motorcycle.
The NERA e-bike also boasts strong hexagonal structures for load-bearing parts, airless tires with customizable tread, as well as forkless steering with eight pivot joints, which increases the contact between dynamic and static parts. It also displays an arch structure, designed for a smoother ride, lightweight and structurally optimized rhomboid wheel rims, as well as customizable fitted seat and chest rest.

“Our NERA E-Motorcycle is the perfect example of the disruptive capabilities of additive manufacturing in the mobility sector,” said Daniel Büning, Co-Founder and Managing Director of NOWLAB.
“The bike is the result of a radical new approach to product development, seamlessly spanning digital simulation to custom manufacturing. We push the limits of engineering creativity to reshape additive manufacturing technology as we know it.”
In addition to the NERA, BigRep showcased another e-mobility prototype at Formnext: the Aero Seat, a passenger seat designed for autonomous driving technology. The 3D printed seat features a shell structure which can be adapted to the driver’s body shape. This is achieved by 3D scanning the driver before the seat is made. Ultimately, by offering a custom fitted seat, the goal is to improve comfort and reduce stress on long distance hauls. The Aero Seat also is equipped with flexible cushions 3D printed from TPU, which are affixed to the shell using just a few points to reduce vibrations.
I think this motorbike is very cool starting from the design, how to manufacture, and the stunning appearance. Existing ideas and supporting technologies when combined can produce an object which if thought would be difficult to make. Usually the printer is used to print text or images on paper, banners, clothes, or other tools. But in this case can print a motor, which is not only in the form of sheets and what makes a more amazed chuckle is that this object can be used like a motorized motor that is assembled in general. Looks like the motor of the future that is coveted by many people. Also I imagine like a motor that can turn into a robot with artificial intelligence. However, this motorbike does not seem to be sold or mass produced and there has never been a 3D motorbike seen on the road. Articles related to this 3D motorcycle were only limited and there is no official information for the continuation of the project for this 3D motorbike. Will it be continued and mass produced and then disseminated.
If this motorbike is mass-produced, how much is the price that will be offered by this motorbike manufacturer? Let’s predict. If one motorbike only costs $ 2,600 or almost equivalent to 37 million. So for the selling price itself can be more than 60-100 million for the unit.
