Riding into the future, with a bike 'printed' out of nylons

Post  Tin Tin on 2011-03-09, 15:17

Any one got one of these?

A research team at Filton, near Bristol, has developed a bicycle "grown" from nylon stockings. The process is known as "additive manufacturing" and involves "growing" products by laying microscopic particles of metal or plastic on top of each other in a 3D printer. Some of the world's largest manufacturing companies are looking at how they can use additive manufacturing to speed up product development and reduce waste. The Times, 08/03/2011, p.40
