Utah Trikes Cuts Costs By 8-10 Times With On-Site 3D Printing 

#

Leave it to a custom trike maker to figure out a way to keep their design and manufacturing process rolling. Once Utah Trikes realized 3D printing could speed their design cycle and reduce costs they were all-in. But add to that the introduction of strong, lightweight carbon fiber material and the trike maker uses phrases like “game-changing.”

Watch the video to see how 3D printers with the capability to print with the high stiffness-to-weight-ratio of carbon fiber allow them to go from design to real production parts.

Strength. Stiffness. Carbon Fibre. Make it with Stratasys Carbon Fibre
