#VendrediVideo – Knives and 3D printed lugs!

This weeks videos are courtesy of Simon Edwards who kindly sent in some links for the VendrediVideo feature… enjoy!

VRZ 1. is a track bike frame with 3d printed stainless steel lugs glued together with carbon fiber tubes.

this method allows to build custom frames in a short period of time.
you could change the geometry to what ever you like, then the lugs gets generated by a software.
now we just need to print the parts finish them and glue the frame together.

The fork is 480 g and the frame weight is 1100 g (for stainless-Carbon Frame)! if we print the lugs in titanium, it will get even lighter.
The printed lugs could also be used with steel or titan tubes!

Meet writer turned knife maker Joel Bukiewicz of Cut Brooklyn. He talks about the human element of craft, and the potential for a skill to mature into an art. And in sharing his story, he alights on the real meaning of handmade—a movement whose riches are measured in people, not cash.
