Jonathan Brand is an artist from New York and created a life-size 3D printed 1972 Honda CB500 motorcycle. Isn’t this one of the most amazing 3D prints you’ve ever seen?To build his dream motorcycle, the 1972 Honda CB500 , Brand used his two Ultimaker 3D printers, Rhino, Netfabb, Geomagic, Kisslicer, 3D Studio Max and Adobe Illustrator.

The bike was made primarily from ultra thin translucent plastic and it took more than a year to complete, but the result is breathtaking!The motorcycle is based on a classic 1972 Honda CB500, and is built from translucent plastics.

It took more than a year to complete, and while it doesn’t function like a normal motorcycle, it is an impressive feat of construction.The parts were each printed individually, with the printer ejecting plastic layer by layer to build up each piece.

All of the prints took between four to twelve hours, sometimes even 24 hours. Each part is number and cataloged, enabling Brand to piece everything together after one whole year of 3D printing.

This project combines engineering and art to create a kickass motorcycle replica. Not only does it show what’s possible with 3D printing in general, it also displays the grandiose capabilities of desktop 3D printing.
