When 3D Printing started popping up, the idea of creating BMX parts from 3D Printing has always been something people have talked about doing. George French has played around with it for a while now and has done a number of things as prototypes to test out ideas, and we know Harry at Wethepeople and Eclat also does rough prototype samples through 3D printing. Even though it’s doable to create 3D printed parts, the cost of producing it is still too high. In recent years, the price of 3D printers has come down and it has opened things up a bit to a lot more people and it looks like Jonny Lee has decided to start playing around with doing some BMX parts. Here’s a look at his first creation, a 3D printed BMX sprocket that he printed and put on his bike and rode! Take a peek. It sounds like we’ll be seeing more of Jonny’s creations in the near future, so we’ll keep you posted!
“Super happy with this. Today was awesome! Great things are happening, people! Stay tuned for more videos with this sprocket as well as the other 3d printed parts I have planned!” – Jonny Lee
