    Default 3D printed boats

    For the past year or so, I've been collaborating with my Australian friend, Selwyn Holland, in what we think is a project that represents the future of Open Class development.

    That may sound like hyperbole, but we have been able to combine my design work and Selwyn's engineering to produce 3D-printed boats. I realize that a number of you have printed fittings successfully, and some have experimented with hulls, but Selwyn's extensive experimentation and testing have made 3D printing a viable alternative to any other construction method...and a better one than most.

    Here is a picture of one of our RG65 prototypes on the water:
