3D Printed Models of Cyclists - Wind Tunnel Testing

Researchers at TU Eindhoven, The Netherlands, and Leuven University, Belgium, have recently used 3D printed models of cyclists in different positions to assess their relative aerodynamic performance in a wind tunnel. 3D printing is increasingly finding applications in cycling e.g. for prototyping and even the mass-customisation of parts - tailored to fit individual cyclists. 3D printing is now a well established method for making models for wind tunnel testing too e.g. for architectural and automotive applications. At Fluxaxis we are well equipped and skilled to help you exploit the benefits of 3D printing for these applications. Why not get in touch?
