The world is moving towards sustainable energy sources and electric vehicles are the future. We at 3D Paradise are proud to have contributed to this transition by prototyping a low-cost e-bike for one of our clients.
At 3D Paradise, we pride ourselves on providing innovative solutions to our clients' problems. When it came to prototyping the e-bike, we faced a unique challenge - the client wanted to showcase and ride the bike for several kilometers and multiple times, which is not typically done during the prototyping phase. To overcome this challenge, we used a specialized version of FDM 3D printing and SLS technology, which allowed us to produce high-quality components in a shorter amount of time.
We also used an innovative approach to deal with the larger parts, which would have taken a long time to 3D print. Instead of printing the components as whole parts, we broke them down into smaller, manageable parts, which could be assembled later. This approach allowed us to optimize the 3D printing process and save time while maintaining the quality of the components. Additionally, we used specialized post-processing methods to ensure that the components were as good as whole, resulting in a high-quality final product.
To achieve this low-cost prototype, we used a specialized version of CarbonFiber reinforced FDM 3D printing and SLS technology, which allowed us to reduce production costs significantly. The cost of prototyping was considerably lower than what the client had initially estimated. A typical e-bike prototype can cost anywhere between 70,000 INR to 3,00,000 INR, depending on the end use case and scope of work. Our cost-effective solution allowed the client to showcase the e-bike to investors for investment and marketing purposes without breaking the bank. The e-bike was also used for pre-bookings, which helped in gauging customer interest and collecting feedback.
At 3D Paradise, we firmly believe that electric vehicles are the future of the automobile industry. That's why we are committed to working on several large-scale automobile prototyping projects. Our aim is to make sustainable transportation accessible and cost-effective for everyone. We are constantly researching and exploring new technologies to make our prototyping process faster and more efficient. With our expertise in 3D printing, we are confident that we can continue to revolutionize the industry and contribute to a greener future.
