The World’s first 3D printed board
The Signal Snowboard‘s factory crew, led by Founder Dave Lee decided to give a crack at making a 3D printed board! 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.
