3D printing: A new opportunity for the yacht industry


3D printing: A new opportunity for the yacht industry

11 Mar 2020
The Deck

Additive Manufacturing techniques give designers and engineers a high grade of geometrical freedom while preserving control over mechanical performance, thanks to CAD software and techniques. This opens-up new opportunity for design manufacturing, shifting prototyping directly into the production field.

Future scenarios for AM applications include also the possibility to integrate larger elements and different materials, as well as different thicknesses and densities, providing solutions for the mechanical complexity of progressively more sophisticated boat components. Superfici provides their AM and nautical expertise in this field, sure that 3D printing will become a feasible and reliable way to produce yachts in the years to come.
