Have you heard of the Additive Manufacturing Movement?
Markforged is a global company specialising in additive manufacturing (3D printing) has highlighted our research in the Surf Flex Lab at the University of Wollongong as part of its Additive Manufacturing Movement.
Our research team was able to rapidly prototype and customize surfboard fins that were ready for testing both in laboratory conditions and by surfers in the ocean.
We work with a number of local, national and international companies from the surfing Industry.
The image above shows shaper Dylan Perese testing one of his instrumented surfboards fitted with 3D printed fins. We have been collaborating with Dylan on a number of projects.
Oh, and he can rip the bag out of waves!
