Four University of Maine seniors created a 3D-printed bicycle frame to give to Orono High School for their Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) capstone project. 

Orono Middle School and High School Librarian Emily Jackson Sanborn will accept the frame from the UMaine seniors and faculty at 1 p.m. on Monday, May 3 outside of the school located at 14 Goodridge Drive in Orono. COVID-19 health and safety guidance will be followed. 

MET seniors Abdullah Albutayyan, Douglas Bolstridge, Ryan Ehrenberg and Ryan McNeilly developed the polylactic acid (PLA) bicycle frame using only consumer-grade printers, which produce objects no bigger than 5.5 inches
