3D Printed Skateboard: Print to Kickflip

 |  |  August 26, 2013


3D printing has come a long way, and it’s going to go even further, when everyone can easily purchase an affordable and fast 3D printer for their homes. We’ve seen lots of intriguing items output using 3D printing tech, and now a Dutch artist created this 3D printed skateboard.

Sam Abbott’s¬†twin-tipped skateboard design was a bit too large for the 3D printer of 3DprintUK and their competition, but they managed to print it in 3 sections. The deck was assembled and joined together with numerous connector pins. The board is textured quite nicely on its underside, and there are plenty of cool details, which will make any skateboarder lust after it.

I wonder when I’ll be able to whip up something like this on a 3D printer at home. Hopefully pretty soon!
