SFmototype, the first-of-its-kind 3D printing event, will bring together riding, digital design, latest 3d printing technology and fabrication, also provide participants exposure to brands like Honda, Kawasaki, and Zero Motorcycles. Between five and six printers are anticipated to use for around 45 days (roughly 2,500 hours of printing).

 

The event

The event kicked off on September 10th at the SF Moto store located at 275 8th Street in San Francisco, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., you can watch it on eSUN and SF Moto’s Facebook page to see industry experts talking about 3D printing and its future, along with how it is relevant to the continually evolving motorcycle industry. 

 

CAD software and 3D printers will be on hand to help bring customers’ ideas into reality. Printing will be done with PETG from eSUN, PLA++ from Breathe-3DP, and PLA supplied by Cubicity. 

 

 

Customers will be able to sketch their design idea, upload a photo of it onto social media and marvel as it is transformed into a 3D file and then into a tangible prototype! They could:

1. Conceptualize their own motorcycle print or product

2. Work with digital designers and 3D printers to turn their concept into a prototype, aka mototype.

3. Learn about the tools and technology enabling affordable and collaborative manufacturing
