It all started back in June 2016 with a “hey, what if we did this…”
Now, we’re giving away motorcycles, 3D printers, CAD software licenses and more to those who enter to win and participate in what we’re calling “SF Mototype”.
Why? Because we believe everyone has untapped creativity that can be unleashed through Computer Aided Design (CAD) and 3D printing.
On September 10th, we’ll kickoff this all-new retail experience where for 45 days, anyone can become their own motorcycle part / component creator. Yes…anyone.
At the end of these 45 days, panels of experts will evaluate each submission and prizes* will be awarded to concepts, designs and fabrications which really engender the spirit of this event: anyone should be able to create and build their own motorcycle parts and components…a.k.a. mototypes.
You3Dit and SF Moto have teamed up with a number of industry collaborators to enable people to Make Anything, Anywhere (see partners / sponsors below).
HERE’S HOW THE PROCESS WORKS:
1. You have an idea for a motorcycle part / component / adapter / etc. Sketch it out on paper, describe it and then, snap a photo and upload to Twitter or Instagram and tag #SFMototype. Share, retweet, etc. to get folks jazzed up about your motorcycle concept.
2. You will be then be contacted by us–You3Dit.com–via social media…who will turn your sketch into a 3D design file using our network of designers and fabricators. (See animations and videos of process below. *Design & fabrication fees may apply).
3. Come to SF Moto in San Francisco to watch 3D printers in action and pick up your print! Not in the SF area? No problem…we can help find a 3D printer local to you (shipping costs may apply).
Join us on September 10th at SF Moto to hear all about 3D printing and how it relates to the motorcycle world! Representatives from both worlds will be there to answer questions and talk about this exclusive opportunity! Our education- and motorcycle- expert panelists will be announced in the coming weeks!
Lunch will be provided for participants as well as special pricing on select motorcycles!
