Making a 3D Printed Skateboard using Carbon Fibre

James Bruton, a former toy designer, YouTuber and general robotics, electrical and mechanical engineer has shared a video on how he made this skateboard using carbon-fibre-reinforced PLA filament and 3D-printed it alongside regular PLA to see how it measured up.

Using the Lulzbot HS1.2 printer he shows how to make this unusually shaped skateboard and puts it to the test at a local skatepark.
