5-Axis Machining Capability

The machining capability these days astounds me. The latest generation of multi-axis CNC machine tools, model based definition (MBD) and the software to make it happen. As an engineer working in the solid model world, I find this stuff continually facinating, even though I have interfaced with this stuff for years.

Moto related? Indeed. Watch what the machine makes.

CNC machines just like this one churn out hard parts for your bike on a daily basis. Not always to this level of fidelity and complexity, but still.

I'm not sure a billet helmet will do much good in a impact.
