I attended a great lecture by Greg Lynn, and architect, boat designer, thinker and one of Time magazine’s 100 most something one year. Influential people?
He was discussing 3D printed parts for boats, but he is also working on marine design informing architectural design.
He did discuss his trimaran, Girlfriend. I have declared in the past that the tri must have a lot of bog involved in building, as all parts are so organic and smooth. And thus add extra weight. I have to take it back a bit. The interior was light, and entirely built with molds. The interior alone cost some $100K, and weighed around 80 lbs. But due to print-through, it took an extra 100 lbs of bog.
Every part had a full size eps foam mold. Its a big deal. Its time and money that I could never imagine on a boat.
We swapped cards. I hope we get to talk more.
