this footage is from last year, august 2013 but it's still relevant tho'! you have to check this out!
sam abbott is one skilled fella - he won our competition that we co-hosted with cgtrader last month. sam won best the best portfolio catagory due to his plethora of awesome designs. we then had a few weeks of fun making his skateboard... it wasn't quite as strait forward as just a print as the board is longer than our build tray, meaning that we had to cut it into 3 sections, joining it together with some connector pins to ensure accuracy and to give it some strength over a simple butt joint. the final result? the worlds first 3d printed twin tip skateboard!
...is it rideable? yes! but I wouldn't drop down many sets of stairs on it just yet!
