3D-printed boat team to open boat builders conference

ADVERTISEMENT

This year’s Maine Built Boats Global Outreach Conference will feature the team behind 3DIRIGO, reportedly the world’s largest 3D-printed boat, according to a press release from Maine Built Boats, the nonprofit organization that hosts the annual conference. 

James Anderson from the University of Maine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center will open the conference by discussing the recent success of 3DIRIGO, a 25-foot, 5,000-pound center-console boat built in 72 hours. Anderson will also discuss potential uses for the Center’s 3D printer — the world’s largest — with regard to parts and tooling for boatbuilders. 

Registration is now open for the daylong conference on Dec. 5 at the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Maine. To see a full schedule of events and seminar descriptions, or to register, visit maineboatbuildersconference.com.
