Dat-da-da-dah! Behold, our first 3D printed sample part! (The real one won’t be orange.) After countless hours watching our Solidworks guru fine-tune our shape, the design for the first model of Pakayak is done. Whew! We have gathered quotes from 3D printers, mold makers and rotomolding manufacturers and have settled on our suppliers.
While our 3D printing partner is printing our prototype, we’re working with and solidifying relationships with our suppliers for the hatch covers, foot pegs, bungie keeper hardware, carrying handles, seat and clamps.
In the photo, that’s a 4-pc carbon (super lightweight) paddle made by Aqua Bound, the paddle company we will be teaming up with.
