Comments Off on World’s first 3D-printed camper trailer took 9 days to make

3D printing just went seriously next level, as a Canadian team unveiled the world’s first 3D-printed camper. Weighing in as the largest indoor, single-piece 3D printed object in the world, the full-sized camper took 9 days and hundreds of feet of filament to create – and the results are pretty fantastic. ? The trailer is the first of its kind, and the sheer size of the project makes it impressive. This is no tiny trailer. The camper is 13 feet long, 6 feet wide and weighs 600 pounds – that’s 507 cubic feet of 3D-printed goodness. It’s over 3 times larger than the previous record-holding indoor, single-piece 3D print. The project was printed at Create Cafe in Saskatoon over 230 hours using the largest 3D printer in North America.

But 3D-printed trailers have an advantage over traditional construction. Since it has no seams, you don’t have to worry about leaks. (If you’ve ever slept in a leaky camper, you know that’s major.) It also doesn’t require a chassis. And you can customize it to your wildest camper dreams. For instance, the team, led by Randy Janes of Wave of the Future 3D, designed the trailer so that it can be converted into an ice fishing cabin.

The trailer is on display at @CreateCafe3D in Saskatoon. #YXE #Sask @GlobalSaskatoon pic.twitter.com/hrF7UerLNb — Adam MacVicar (@AdamMacVicar) February 23, 2018

Chile creates five new national parks from 10 million acres of land in historic act

Comments Off on Chile creates five new national parks from 10 million acres of land in historic act

In a landmark act of conservation, Chile has created five new national parks out of over 10 million acres of land in Patagonia . One million of these acres was donated to the Chilean government by American philanthropists Kristine McDivitt Tompkins, the former CEO of Patagonia Inc., and the late Doug Tompkins, who founded North Face and Esprit. Chilean president Michelle Bachelet signed the law creating these parks, forging a vast 17-park route through the beautiful, sparsely populated region. The one million acre donation from the Tompkins represents the culmination of decades of land conservation work in Chile, and what is being called be the largest donation of privately held land in history. A beloved place in life, Patagonia is where Doug Tompkins passed away in 2015 in a kayaking accident. The Tompkins are one of several foreign landowners of Patagonia, a role not without controversy or dissent from locals. Still, their land donation marks a major milestone in Chilean conservation .

To use natural resources in a way that does not destroy them. To have sustainable development – the only profitable economic development in the long term.” Bachelet’s environmental legacy is not limited to Patagonia. Now at the end of her term, Bachelet has also recently created one of the largest Marine Protected Areas near Easter Island, preserving 720,000 square kilometers in the Pacific Ocean . “President Bachelet is leaving behind a bold legacy of environmental protection,” Maximiliano Bello, an advisor to the Pew Bertarelli Ocean Legacy program, told The Guardian . “This is more impressive because Chile is still a developing country, with a long history of development and exploitation of resources – in most cases over-exploitation. If Chile can take these huge environmental steps, there are few reasons why developed nations can’t act as well.” Via The Guardian Images via Deposit Photos ,  Carolina Del Campo/Flickr and payayita/Flickr
