3D Print Technology and Motorcycle Tooling

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

Since purchasing my Ducati in 1996, I’ve had a love-hate relationship with it.  When the weather is right, the motorcycle is freshly detailed, and the engine mechanics are in complete adjustment, there is no better feeling in the world like aggressively shifting through gears at wide-open throttle cresting an apex of a turn while dragging knee on a back country road.3DP & Motorcycle Tooling

The downside to Ducati ownership is the required frequent maintenance:

  • Incessant wear and tear of a racing dry clutch
  • Multiple cold start attempts due to having racing carburetors
  • Endless adjustments of the desmodromic valve assembly
  • Replacement of the fragile camshaft belts

Enter 3D Print Technology

I have a soft spot for spending countless hours creating tangible items from blocks or rounds of metal in a machine shop.  However, when reducing time-to-market, minimizing cost, or more importantly, returning my Ducati motorcycle to road-worthy condition, 3D Print Technology is the “go-to” additive manufacturing process to create parts, assemblies and tooling in many industries.
