Machineart slims and smooths the BMW R1200GS
The GSM is designed to be a sleeker, sexier version of the stock GS
Machineart Industrial Design, Slims down and smooths out the most popular adventure touring bike on the market today, the BMW R1200 GS. The R1200GSM (M for Machineart) is designed to be a sleeker, sexier version of the stock GS. The GSM was built to promote the MachineartMoto brand of aftermarket parts for the current GS. Machnieart-moto products are sold through www.machineartmoto.com or dealers.
The GSM Design
Machineart’s design creates a new design language that is more beautiful, characterized by line and surface flow, while retaining the essential GS attributes of toughness, versatility, and customizability. The GSM concept achieves beauty and sophistication in a market segment where appearance has been secondary to functionality. The design looks ahead, reflects modern design principles and succeeds in its purpose to stimulate enthusiasts and promote the sale of MachineartMoto products.
Direct Digital Manufacturing
GSM body parts were modeled in Alias Studio Tools and SolidWorks 3D CAD software, and produced in ABS-M30 plastic directly from 3D CAD data using two Fortus 3D Production Systems (www.fortus.com) from Stratasys. Fortus systems use FDM, the leading technology in 3D printing and 3D production. Fortus systems eliminate the need to make tooling to mold plastic parts and allow easy revision and customization from one set of parts to the next.
