About the Topic

Ed will describe the Bafang BBS02 mid-drive electric bike conversion kit, explore the solid models he designed to install the parts on a pair of bikes, and show how 3-D printing improved the result.

This talk will remind you of the math you took in school, explain how consumer-grade 3-D printers have become essential machine tools, and encourage you to reboot that old bike in your garage.

About the Speaker

Ed Nisley worked for IBM during the final Good Old Days, quit before it became fashionable, and has worked on interesting, useful, and amusing projects ever since. He fixes broken things, writes the Along the G-Code Way column for Digital Machinist magazine, and tinkers with hardware & software & firmware. Being that type of guy, he rides a recumbent bicycle festooned with 3-D printed parts and amateur radio gear.
