3D Printed NIRI Grips Make Mountain Biking Painless

3D Printed NIRI Grips Make Mountain Biking Painless

Riding a bike is fun, but it can be uncomfortable at times, especially when biking over rough terrain. When you hit a bump, a jolt is sent through your hands and arms – but with shock absorbing grips, that discomfort can be reduced. That’s what Riccardo Nicastro, a mechanical engineer, and Andrea Ricci, a medical […]

Low Cost Selective Laser Sintering: The Innovator's Dilemma in Powder?

Low Cost Selective Laser Sintering: The Innovator's Dilemma in Powder?

Selective Laser Sintering is also called powder bed fusion and SLS. The SLS process sees a bed of polymer powder selectively sintered by a laser. A new layer is applied and this is then also hardened with unsintered powder acting as a support. Dominated by EOS Gmbh, SLS is probably the most high volume, high […]
