Signal Snowboards Builds and Tests Out the World's First 3D Printed Snowboard (Video)

Applying 3D printing technology to their favorite activity, Signal Snowboards, working with GROWit 3D, has successfully created a working snowboard. Using carbon material, the world's first 3D printed snowboard was manufactured in puzzle-like pieces that were put together to make the full length of the board. While traditional manufacturing processes involve taking a larger piece of material and reducing it to create a desired shape, the 3D printing technique builds the board in layers.

Watch this video of the detailed construction process and the exciting test ride:
