Tasked with optimizing a digital product life cycle for customized production, students learn how to ‘think additively’ by designing self-balancing scooter development process around additive technology. Production of first self-balancing scooter prototype reduced from four weeks to four days with Stratasys additive technologies, equating to time-savings of 85%.

Andy Middleton, President EMEA, Stratasys, concludes: “The University of Applied Sciences Ravensburg-Weingarten’s is a prime example of how designers, engineers and manufacturers today are involving additive manufacturing from the outset of product design to be able to exploit its benefits throughout the entire development cycle.
