Default Print-a-Kayak

Introducing the worlds first 3D printed Kayak...


unfortunately because 3D printers are not large enough it had to be printed in sections and fastened together. With a big enough printer you could have quite the light weight rig

The color scheme was a big turn off. Indeed a big waste of time.

With all those bolts holding it together I would imagine that this is pretty heavy. I also don't understand why it is this patchwork of different colors. Just because its 3d printed doesn't mean it has to be ugly.

It's just a horrible idea, big waste of time, resources and money!

42 days of your life you can't get back, i rather just buy one than spend all of that time just to save money.

I think that it is pretty clear that this guy is more interested in 3d printing than he is in kayaking.
