Corey Dunksy is an Adjunct Professor at De Anza College in Cupertino, CA where he teaches additive manufacturing in the Department of Design and Manufacturing technologies.
As part of an ongoing project, Dunksy needed to prototype a very small, fully functional mechanical motorcycle chain for a replica of an antique completely 3D printed motorcycle. The ultra-high resolution, accuracy and precision of BMF’s micro 3D printers is what drew Corey to contact BMF. From his experience, there were no other 3D printing technologies in his lab that could achieve the high resolution and accuracy that this project required.
Watch the video to learn how BMF’s technology helped his students micro 3D print a motorcycle chain with clearances between each chain at +/- 5µm, unachievable by any other 3D printer in his lab.

What are the Biggest Challenges for the 3D Printing Industry?
What are the biggest challenges for the 3D printing industry? They fall into four major areas: Equipment, Materials, Repeatability and Post-Processing. Buyers need to determine the best technology to use for a specific application. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, and the research to perform may be considerable.Read More
