NERA is the first 3D-printed motorbike from German additive manufacturer BigRep, through its innovation arm NOWLAB.

Designed with airless tyres and a fully electric engine, all parts of the bike have been 3D-printed – including the tyres, rim and seat – excluding only electrical components.

NOWLAB used a fused filament fabrication (FFF) process to 3D-print NERA, where a continuous spool of filament is fed through a moving, heated printer extruder-head.
