Introduction

This guide is created by five students of the TU Delft, Pieter, Mansour, Yvo, Suzanne and Rebecca, to make older models of Bugaboo strollers more repairable if spare parts are no longer available. The Bugaboo frames are very durable, and often outlive the period in which spare parts are available for order.

Parts that most often break were 3D-modeled, and the files were used to print new parts with a performance that is acceptable and safe according to Bugaboo requirements.
