Aenimal Bhulk
A 3d printed bike frame made with recycled materials and solar power.
AENIMAL BHULK is a special MTB frame made with eco-compatible material using FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) 3D printing. This particular 3D printing process consists in a fused filament deposition by a special CNC machine, able to make very complex objects without shape limits that are typical of the standard molding process. The material used for the bike frame is a biodegradable, recycled and recyclable PLA bio polymers derived from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugarcane. Also, power consumption for 3D printing a frame is only 56 kWh and the energy used in the frame production is sourced from solar panels. This, together with the use of recycled materials, makes the BHULK bike frame much more environmentally friendly compared to a carbon fibers or aluminium bike frame.
