Collaborative Group Using Custom High-Performance Materials to 3D Print a Competitive Sailboat

Additive manufacturing is being put to use more often now in the boat and ship industry – we’ve seen innovations ranging from 3D printed electric yachts and sailboats to hulls for a yacht and a submarine. Recently, chemical company LEHVOSS Group, and its Germany-based parent Lehmann&Voss&Co., announced that it is working with Livrea Yacht, no stranger to 3D printing […]

Collaboration and 3D Printing Streamline Boat Production

Even though large scale additive manufacturing is becoming more common, it’s still no less impressive to see what it can produce. Massive objects can be 3D printed in very few or even in one piece, and when you add CNC machining into the equation, you get an even more streamlined manufacturing process. That’s what Thermwood […]

Saving a 3D Printed Titanic Model from the Original’s Fate

Saving a 3D Printed Titanic Model from the Original’s Fate

The Titanic features large in the mind of the public. This is partly due to the blockbuster film of the same name featuring a young, handsome Leonardo DiCaprio and schmaltzy music by Celine Dion designed to wring tears from your eyes. But even without this movie, the RMS Titanic is a boat worth remembering. It […]

ETH Zurich Shares Details on How 3D Printing Helped Their Concrete Canoe Sail to Victory

ETH Zurich Shares Details on How 3D Printing Helped Their Concrete Canoe Sail to Victory

You learn something new every day, and one thing I learned recently is that concrete canoe competitions are a thing. We recently covered one of them, as it featured a winning canoe designed by students at NYU Tandon using 3D printing, but there are other canoes out there that owe their success to 3D printing. Every other […]

Livrea Yachts Partners with Autodesk and SABIC to Manufacture the World’s First 3D Printed Yacht

We’ve seen 3D printed models of yachts, 3D printed yacht parts, and even a decorative jaguar that was 3D printed to grace the bowsprit of a superyacht, but an entirely 3D printed yacht is another story. Italian startup Livrea Yachts, founded by two Sicilian boat builders, is not a stranger to 3D printing: a 1:14 […]

Springboro STEMfest: Ohio Students Learn About 3D Printing, STEAM Education, and Rocket Launchers

Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics are picking up steam lately – which is handy, as they fall into a curriculum of the same name, as STEAM education takes its place in schools around the world. Also called STEM education, these curricula focus students’ attention on growing fields in the 21st century. In Dayton, Ohio, […]

Meticulous 3D Printed RC Model of the Titanic is Almost Ready to Sail – and Sink

Meticulous 3D Printed RC Model of the Titanic is Almost Ready to Sail – and Sink

Of all the disastrous events in US history, perhaps none fascinate people the way the Titanic does. The 1997 multiple-record-breaking movie certainly had something to do with the national obsession; as a middle-schooler, I saw it in the theater at least three times, sobbing dutifully each time before going off to Steak ‘n Shake. The […]

Make Your Own 3D Printed Swamp Boat with This Instructable

I live in the Florida panhandle, where bayous and swamps are not a rare sight. Therefore, swamp boats are a fairly common sight as well. These are very simple flat boats that are usually steered using the motor in the back — easy for navigating the tricky terrain of the swamps. If you aren’t quite […]

It’s always nice to be reminded of why 3D printing is so much fun. While the technology may have been developed as a manufacturing method, what we now collectively call the 3D printing industry was really kicked off by groups of makers having fun in their garages and hackspaces. Printing statues, basic tools, jewelry and […]

Back in January, you may recall a story we did about a 3-foot-long 3D printed model depicting the Atlantic Mercy ship. It was created by a student from LeTourneau University, named Hans Nelson, and it grabbed quite a bit of media attention. At the same time, our story inspired one man, named Bernard Dohnt to try […]

Maker 12.5 – A 3D Printed Vintage Sailboat Floats the Filament Sea

I love the romance of wooden sailboats. They are a wonderful marriage of art and science; each one crafted by a maker’s hands, the design influenced by scientific interaction of wind, wood, and water, creating a form mathematically and aesthetically beautiful. There is a sailboat I have always wanted to build for myself, the Herreshoff […]

3D Printed Tri-Boat Makes a Splash on Thingiverse

We’ve written a lot about quadcopters, now it’s time for another form of transportation in miniature: the ti-boat. Mechanical engineer and Thingiverse contributor Rahav C. has shared his design for a remote controlled, 3D printed tri-boat. Having seen other boats contributed to Thingiverse, Rahav was inspired to try and make his own. “The idea of […]

Submarines are one of those incredible pieces of machinery that most of us are at least slightly fascinated with. These vehicles have been around for centuries, and are still used today for various purposes. Submarines didn’t really become popular until World War I, when they were utilized as a way of attacking ships from beneath […]

Over the past year, we have seen many incredible 3D printing projects take place. There have been houses, cars, boats, and prosthetic hands that have all been created on 3D printers. However, one artist, named Hung-Chih Peng, may have them all beat, at least when it comes to creativity and time involved. Hung-Chih Peng is a […]

We have seen a lot of creativity coming from DIY at-home 3D printing enthusiasts. We have seen many very unique 3D printers fabricated by designers in the comfort of their own homes, but we haven’t seen anything like what John Semmens decided to do. He wasn’t satisfied with merely building his own 3D printer out of […]
