The Biggest 3-D Printed Boat In The World

The+Biggest+3-D+Printed+Boat+In+The+World

A 5000 pound boat that is 25 feet wide long was just 3-D printed. This is the largest 3-D printed object in the world. The cost of this boat was about $40,000 and took 72 hours to print it. The material they used was plastic polymer pellets.

The University of Maine’s team used the largest 3-D printer in the world to create this. Their Advanced Structures and Composites Center program broke three Guinness world records. The Guinness records they received were the world’s largest polymer 3-D printer, the largest solid 3-D printed object, and the largest boat created from a 3-D printer.

This relates to engineering because the team behind the 3-D printer and boat had to design and work as a team to create these products. They had to follow a plan and find all the parts to make them. In engineering, you have to work as a team, design, plan, and find parts.
