The electrification of bikes is bringing extraordinary attention and growth impulses to cycling. The manufacturer Xplorcycles forged the plan to equip the next generation of bicycles with an electric motor. To connect the 3.2 kg electric motor to the rest of the bike structure, a design existed for manufacturing using conventional manufacturing processes. However, this design was not suitable for small series production and added extra weight. To adjust the part to additive manufacturing, they used MSC Apex Generative Design to generate a lightweight, AM-ready design. Read how they designed a durable, weight optimized and smart motor mount.
