A unique participant in the Seafair Milk Carton Derby [Jul. 25th, 2012|07:46 pm]

According to The Daily, one of the Seafair Milk Carton Derby boats had a unique character: the sponsoring team was a University of Washington engineering student organization which ran all of their plastic milk jugs through an industrial shredder to reduce them to tiny flakes, then poured the resulting flakes into a three-dimensional printer to produce the exact hull shape they believed would win the race. This was probably the world's first boat to be generated via three-dimensional printing.
