Radiator Cover Design with Materialise e-Stage AM Support
At ELISE, we took on the task of designing radiator covers of BMW GS machines with which riders’ take part in the GS Trophy Rally. This motorcycle radiator cover serves as a carrier for the riders’ name and starting number. Hence each participating rider receives an individual radiator cover.
For the motorcycles, we at ELISE first created the technical DNA of the desired component, which automates the entire product development process. Employing the technical DNA, ELISE is able to integrate the riders’ unique information into the design. Thus our software also takes individualisations into account. Each component was then 3D-printed.
The result: a mass product and yet each part was only built once! We have achieved a fully automated process from the input of the driver data to the printable AM part. We can proudly report it took only a few days to design these motorcycle parts with our software. We achieved this exciting process using the e-Stage algorithm developed by our colleagues at Materialise.
