We are proud to be the official 3D printing partner of the Oxford Brookes Racing team for 2019. Partners with OBR since 2018, RPS will be providing 3D printing parts and engineering support to the students of Oxford Brookes University for a 2ndyear.
In 2018, RPS helped OBR optimise the design of a range of parts on their Formula student car. This included the 3D-printed intake plenum, printed on HP’s Multi-Jet Fusion technology, and developing a manufacturing method for the aerodynamics package using 3D-printed moulds from the NEO800 and DSM PerFORM resin. The OBR18 Formula Student Racing team finished 1stin the UK and 2ndoverall in the 2018 competition. OBR are looking to better this position for the 2019 competition and are looking at RPS’s support and 3D printing technology to help them achieve this.
RPS are passionate about encouraging the next generation of STEM graduates and teaching students about the opportunities of industrial 3D printing. We look forward to the Formula Student race held at Silverstone in the United Kingdom this July.
