Check out this world’s first 3D print of a full sized snowboard made from pieces of carbon based powder and bonding them with resin.With the addition of a few metal support rods, binding attachments and the plastic slabs the finished board is impressive!
The Signal Snowboard’s factory crew use new 3D printer technology to create this snowboard. Dave Lee and Signal Engineer Jeb Ferria input a basic CAD drawing along with a carbon-based powder into a state of the art Plastic Laser Sintering Machine.
Watch this video to see how it was made and how the board faired in the deep powder of Colorado:
Here’s some pictures of the 3d snowboard in action:
