See how we 3D Scanned & 3D Printed a Ducati Carburetor for a Ducati Racing Motorbike.

This video (produced by our sister company Solid Solutions) details how we reverse engineered a carburetor for a classic racing bike riden by a British Rider – Tony Rutter.

Tony was 4 time Formula 2 World Champion when he unfortunately crashed this bike which also ended his carrer.

Guy Taylor his mechanic rebuilt the bike and keeping it running is a real passion for Guy and our Reverse Engineering Expert – Nick Pericli.

We used a Creaform HandyScan to scan the orginal part, we used the Creaform software to get it to a workable file and then transferred into SolidWorks to create accurate gemetry.

Finally we printed the part on a Formlabs SLA printer in their standard grey resin.

Watch the 3 minute video below to understand the process.
