Every Third Thursday: The World’s first 3D printed snowboard

Snowboards have traditionally been made of wood, resin, laminates, and P-Tex—until now!

The Signal Snowboard’s factory crew, led by Founder Dave Lee, give the board presses a rest this month and instead print out a brand new snowboard. 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 Connex 500 printer — 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. Another ETT success story!
