Comments Off on Foldable, lightweight kayak assembles in 10 minutes

For all the joy they can bring out on the water, traditional kayaks are bulky, heavy and often cumbersome to transport. But that’s all about to change thanks to the Justin Case Kayak , a foldable, lighweight kayak design made with 3D-printed materials that can be assembled in just 10 minutes. Most kayaks are long, bulky and heavy, making transport extremely difficult. The Justin Case Kayak prototype is designed for water lovers by fellow adventurers who wanted to make kayaking easier, simultaneously enabling better access to nature and spontaneous adventure. Related: Modular kayak with an off-color name breaks down into three portable pieces  The team behind Justin Case developed their prototype based on optimal functionality. With the foldable design , kayakers of any level can easily carry their kayak folded up in its carry case, making impromptu water excursions easier than ever. The compact design is optimal for storage as well, easily hidden from view unlike most kayaks. The lightweight carbon fiber frame is held together with 3D printed connectors, and covered in a water and tear-proof ripstop skin. The prototype development process was green-minded throughout, focusing on using as little material as possible while providing a long-lasting product.

Comments Off on Modular kayak with an off-color name breaks down into three portable pieces

Though it probably won’t be advertised on billboards around the English-speaking world any time soon, this kayak’s clever design will speak to paddlers in any language. The Boner Kayak, named for its Swiss inventor Hans Boner, breaks down into three pieces which slot together and can fit in the back seat of a car. While most portable kayaks are made of plastic, the wood and fibreglass construction of the Boner Kayak set it apart, giving it an eye-catching classic look when it’s skimming across the water.

An engineer for leading 3D printer manufacturer 3D Systems, Jim Smith decided to build his own large scale 3D printer at home and then used it to produce the world’s first 3D-printed kayak. To print the kayak, which is made with 58 pounds of ABS plastic, he had to modify the 3D printer to print the parts inside a heated chamber so they wouldn’t warp or crack. The colorful result maintains its crucial shape and works like a charm.
