World's Largest 3D-Printed Boat

World's Largest 3D-Printed Boat
The team at the University of Maine has used the world’s largest 3D-printer to print the world’s largest 3D-printed boat.

The boat was printed at the university’s Advanced Structures & Composite Center as a demonstration of the capabilities of the school’s massive 3D printer. The printer, which can expand from 70 to 100 feet with an expansion, printed the 25-foot, 5,000-pound boat (named Dirigo) using plastic polymer pellets in one piece over the course of 72 hours. The boat, which costs around $40,000 to create, has proven seaworthy.
