New Approach to 3D Printing a Large Yacht Hull Mold

Thermwood 3D Printing Large Yacht Hull Mold.

Thermwood recently printed several sections from a 51-foot long yacht hull mold to demonstrate how only a single mold may be needed for the manufacture of larger yachts. To demonstrate to the industry, Thermwood printed a 10-foot section from a 51’ yacht hull mold in sections and then the sections were bound together using high strength polymer cables into two mold halves. The two halves were bolted together to form a complete female mold for the yacht hull. The demonstration shows that really large structures can be made on smaller, lower cost additive manufacturing systems.
