Worlds First 3D Printed Snowboard

Snowboards have traditionally been made from wood, epoxy resins, laminates, and P-Tex, until now The Signal Snowboard’s factory crew.

Using new 3D printer technology, Dave Lee and Signal Engineer Jeb Ferria input a basic CAD drawing along with a carbon-based powder into a state of the art Plastic Laser Sintering Machine—the end result is a radical powder gun (no not that kind of gun—a snowboard) ready for riding in the steep and deep of Colorado. Signal Teamrider Matt Guess and Dave Lee put the board through the paces, and it passes with flying powder.
