Additive manufacturing is not the only 3D printer. Just check this out!
We still can’t believe we found the grail, balancing the critical parameters dictated by the ever-demanding polymer-product-production trias. We applied 5D printing using SprutCam. Smooth toolpaths are essential, preserving the old Dutch aak shape. D3Aak will be printed in a recently developed polypropylene material, supplied and supported by DSM.
D3Aak is inspired by an old Dutch boat design (the ‚aak‘) that has proven itself over the years as a robust and sturdy model that can even go out to sea.
According to Leon Wokke, owner of D3Aak Boten „D3Aak boats wants to tackle the plastic problem and make a sustainable, environmentally friendly, and innovative product that solves a major problem in our world.“
