Signal Snowboards Creates First 3D Printed Snowboard
3D printers are an amazing concept. One which has allowed individuals and companies to create unique one of a kind pieces and stunning prototypes which would have been to expensive to make in the past.
The latest 3D printed masterpiece is this Signal designed snowboard. The board was created in parts and assembled like a puzzle with reinforced steel strips to hold everything together to keep the board from breaking.
The one of a kind board has been fully tested and is rideable even in the deepest of snow thanks to it’s special wide nose design. Testers have commented that the prototype is a little on the slow side though, and due to printing limitations don’t expect 3D printed boards to go mainstream anytime soon. Still it is just another way of showing that this is plenty of untapped potential for 3D Printers.
