Empire CyclesThe use of titanium as the main metal has made it possible for the created bicycle to be both light and robust at the same time. The metal frame of this bike, made using Renishaw 3D printers for Empire Cycles, was designed using a technique called “topological optimization.”

The software used in topological optimization allows iterative steps to deposit material created by 3D printing in “logical” positions, making manufacturing as efficient as possible.

This allows to increase the speed of the 3D printing of the titanium frame, always adapting the optimal shape previously designed.
