The above part was printed with an Ultimaker S5, leveraging on the printer’s ability to print dual materials. Igus I150’s tribological properties was required to 3d print the integrated bushings and external sliding surfaces that were in contact with the machine.
In contrast the main frame of the component was printed with a carbon-fibre infused nylon that while abrasive provided the industrial strength and rigidity for this custom lever component. The unique combination of contrasting material properties provided a unique and custom solution for the user.
