Designing and 3D Printing a Kayak with SOLIDWORKS and Stratasys – Part 4 of 4

June 9, 2017

Taking a design from a concept to a physical artifact that exists in the real world is exhilarating. With the design help from SOLIDWORKS in part 1, the analysis help from Simulation in part 2 and help from solidThinking Inspire in part 3, the kayak frames are now optimized for 3D printing. To close our the series, in video four we walk through choosing the proper 3D printing technology and options to build our parts.
