    Hi all,

    Shapeways did a good job on printing this one out :)
    There are really thin parts on this bike, they look fragile but they they are quite strong. I designed some parts to be rotatable, but unfortunately they fused together. The tolerances need to be bigger then 0.2mm. Something new I learned :)

    Here are the pictures, the small spikes sticking out are part of the print. They form a connection between the stand and the bike. It can easily be cut and removed.

    Cheers,

    Rob

    That came out really nicely! I'm also interested in how big it is as the cables must have been fun ;)

    Hi guys,

    This was printed in one piece, and then cut.
    The finished model is 20 cm or 7.8" long.

    Thanks for the kind words :)
