NOWLAB Co-Founder & Managing Director Daniel Büning started with an idea: create a functional prototype that revolutionizes mobility. On November 13, 2018 at Formnext BigRep unveiled the NERA E-Motorcycle 3D Printed Motorcycle and it went viral!
Only 12 weeks from sketch to final product at the BigRep headquarters, NERA took its maiden voyage in Berlin. With Marco Mattia Cristofori in the design lead, the NERA e-Bike was engineered from the ground up, disrupting traditional design, engineering and production in every aspect. The result is a 100-percent, customizable, functional prototype, designed and produced with more time- and cost- efficiency than previously imaginable.
Tires, bumper, seat and handles are printed with flexible material and fulfill functions that usually require complex mechanical constructions such as hydraulic, shock absorbing suspension systems. The strength and elasticity of the materials allowed them to come up with completely new design approaches that replace the traditional mechanical components. A horizontally embedded Pro Flex suspensor with honeycomb structure, for example, replaces a traditional hydraulic system integrated in metal fork steering systems for this 3D Printed Motorcycle.
Embedded Electronics: Battery, motor, cable and control systems are not printed. The motor is electric since traditional combustion engines cannot be embedded in polymer objects. The electronics can be adjusted individually and are integrated as a modular system that allows individual settings.
Instead of a fork steering, NERA has eight pivot points, clamping vertically instead of assembling the fork to rotate the wheel on a horizontal axis.
Airless tires with customized tread printed with flexible thermoplastic. Front tire has an arch structure for a softer, smoother ride, back tire has a stronger hexagonal structure for load-bearing parts.
Daniel Büning, Co-Founder and Managing Director of NOWLAB, explains, “Our NERA E-Motorcycle is the perfect example of the disruptive capabilities of additive manufacturing in the mobility sector. The bike is the result of a radical new approach to product development, seamlessly spanning digital simulation to custom manufacturing. Therefore, NERA 3D Printed Motorcycle combines several innovations developed by NOWLAB such as the airless tire, functional integration, and embedded sensor technology. We push the limits of engineering creativity to reshape additive manufacturing technology as we know it.”
The NERA Fully 3D Printed E-Motorcycle is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
