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 ( 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.
