Building a rear rack for a suspension bike
Combining SLS with other materials
Steel, carbon, and PA12
Using steel plates and carbon fiber rods from his workshop, the robust framework of the rear rack was quickly realized. To get the right shapes and angles and to hold the system together, Peter relied on the selective laser sintering (SLS) process. The necessary mechanical components were subsequently 3D printed on the Sintratec S2 system with robust PA12 nylon.
Components made to last
“SLS is a very powerful solution. I am absolutely free in terms of design and I can create very strong and sturdy end products.”
