Selective Laser Sintering (otherwise known as SLS) is an additive manufacturing technology that has multiple advantages. the process works by converting 3D data into layers of materials which will be compiled on top of each other according to the necessary specifications. the resulting physical parts are lightweight, highly durable, and heat and chemical resistant, all created without tooling costs. with an understanding of this technique, Omer Sagittarius designed the “luna bike”.

versions of the bike

the project used the method to fashion a nylon frame, front fork and handlebar, while the rest of the components are off-the-shelf to keep costs to a minimum. the hexagonal pattern provides minimal surface area while providing strength and stability. as parts are printed on demand, sagiv suggests that no inventory is required. this does not come with any investment in molding and thus allows changes to be made to the overall shape, colors and materials.
