• D3Aak Boat

    Construction

The D3Aak is a 3D printed barge boat, completely manufactured without molds, custom made and made of recycled plastic. The D3Aak is electrically powered and is 100% recyclable after end of life.

From idea to production

The D3Aak is a 5.2 m long 3D printed barge, uniquely designed and inspired by the old Dutch ‘Aak’ shape, manufactured entirely without molds and made from recycled plastic. The D3Aak is electrically powered and is 100% recyclable after the end of use.

D3Aak Boten wants to tackle the plastic waste problem with a sustainable, environmentally friendly and innovative product.

For this project we applied 5D morphing i.e., the use of slicing by curved surfaces. This option was necessary to be able to print the difference in height between the front and side of the boat without discontinuous edges.

Material
Polypropylene, glass fiber filled
