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.
Thats a cool video
my brother is into that so I sent him that video
his response

Hi Marty,

That is really cool. We have a five axis machine here. We are making the blade fold actuators for the new heavy lift Sikorsky CH-35K helicopters. The guy is sitting on the rotor in the pic below. Our test piece is made out of aluminum like the helmet. The real part will be made out of a single block of titanium.

Before we cut the test piece, we had the computer model "3D printed" using a special laser/plastic machine. Instead of coming out on paper, it comes out as a large piece of plastic that you can handle and view.


great video, I'll show it around the shop.
