    Hello everyone,this is my gentleman's cruiser.
    3d printed hull, supposed to be a motor launch. I moved away the enclosed bridge space and kept it open with front windshield only.
    Did a planking job with balsa wood of 1mm. 2300KV flash hobby motor with 30A brushless ESC.
    Normally use a lipo of 850maH for a 10minutes run.
    It has also a 2cell 2000mah Li-ion setup inside.
    Ask me anything if you want to know.
    Thank you, everyone!

    Hello Stephan,

    I guess you're asking about the plank color.
    I just varnished it several times till i love the color on the boat. When it becomes red, i sprayed clear coat. Just these 2.

    Hello,mturpin013.
    It takes time to print a boat in 3d printer. If you take this boat,it has a 2mm thick hull. Took 2 days approx.
    And if you build a fiberglass hull thats very rigid. Wooden hulls also. But a 3d printed hull aint that strong. I put a layer of fiberglass in it. And the part's were together using CA glue.

    I'm currently building a 610mm sports fisherman. The front part takes 14 hours to print. Will try to make a blog with it. Wish me luck!

    Haha. Thank you so much,newby.
    I already had the first run. Can't upload the video. It only supports YouTube.

    Hi Sakibian,

    Nice job, I like the weathering on your deck planks, how did you achieve that look?

    Cheers,
    stephen.

    It looks as if you've made a good job, I'm interested in the 3D printed hull how long did it take to print and what is the finish like for painting? I suppose what I'm saying is does 3D printing have a place in making hulls for model boats against the traditional wood construction.
