Polish 3D printing manufacturer Zortrax have showcased the power of their printers by taking a standard Triumph Daytona 675 and designing and printing a completely new set of bodywork.

The panels were printed using several of the firm's Big M300 printer, and the entire process, including scanning the motorcycle, took one month. Fairings, screen, lights, seat and the tank were all printed using the 3D printer.

With the constant improvement of 3D printing technology, it's only a matter of time until aftermarket or replacement bodywork is widely available to consumers, with this project from Zortrax also showcasing the possibility for custom bodywork. There may even come a time when 3D printers are commonplace in homes all over the world and printing your own parts will be cheap and easy.

Electric bike manufacturer Alta is already using 3D printing to test prototypes quicker than they would traditionally be able to.
