    Nap, our boats are printed as one structure, with deck and canoe hull as an integral unit. I think it reduces warping and results in a more rigid hull.

    Another tip: We found that the printer doesn't like flat horizontal surfaces either. If you look at our pictures, you can see that things like the bulkhead of the mast well are sloped at about a 45 degree angle.

    Sweet, thanks.
    I actually stared at one of the pics on the printbed and saw that the angle was about 45...... which dawned on me is the angle most printers can deal with....... and then I changed mine in cad lol.
    Emulation is the highest form of flattery after all :P
