With 3D printing we can customize the frame of the bicycle to each individual user

In this video Richard Janssen and Bastiaan Ingenhut explain why 3D printing is the solution for customizing the frame of the 100% Limburg Bike. The role of Brightlands Materials Center is to 3D print the lugs with continuous fiber additive manufacturing technology. In this video we also show why this continuous fiber is important.

We collaborate in this project with Eurocarbon, CeraCarbon, Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Kembit, Mullens Sports and Health Innovation, Chemelot Innovation and Learning Labs – CHILL and Belgian Cycling Factory – known from racing bike brands like Ridley and Eddy Merkcx – and which is supported by the European Fund for Regional Development and the Province of Limburg in the OPZuid framework.
