German large-format 3D printer maker BigRep continues to push the limits and boundaries of its 3D printing technology, introducing new ideas and concepts that can truly disrupt traditional manufacturing practices. The latest is a concept that appears to be quite feasible: a 3D printed airless bike tire that can actually be used on a normal bicycle.

The airless tire was 3D printed using BigRep’s new PRO FLEX material – a TPU-based filament. The video above shows how the bike was then taken for a spin in Berlin and performed quite well.

BigRep is a future-focused large-scale industrial 3D printer manufacturer based in Berlin with offices in New York and Singapore. The company produces two world-famous German-engineered workhorse printers: the BigRep ONE, with its 1m³ print volume, and the more compact BigRep STUDIO, which can deliver large complex prints in any workspace.

Victor does not really exist. He is a pseudonym for several writers in the 3D Printing Media Network team. As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
