Once unpacked, the jig is transformed into a 3D structure using the included fasteners.The jig is highly adjustable and can accommodate most types of frame geometries and tube sizes. Custom 3D Printed Carbon Fiber Bike Frame. If you’re really into cycling and are on this site, chances are that over the years you’ve at least toyed with the idea of making your own frame.
