Since 2014, Sune’s idea to create electric longboards has turned into a small startup: Faraday Motions. His first experiments with 3D Printing were actually with an early home printer, but it was often unreliable and sometimes broke down while it was printing. Once he purchased an Ultimaker 2, he was able to start printing usable parts that he could experiment with. However, as Sune’s longboard was propelled by an electric motor, the motor brackets which kept it in place could not be printed in the nylon plastic typically used by home printers, or the material would warp in proximity to the heat of the motor. Workshops near Sune’s home in Copenhagen were unwilling to produce such a small-scale project, and that’s when he came across the services of i.materialise. Sune prints his motor brackets in alumide with i.materialise, and has recently started experimenting with 3D printing disc brake calipers in steel and alumide.
