The World’s First 3D Printed Skateboard
Dutch artist Samuel Abbot won a 3D printer in a contest organized by 3DPrintUK and CGTrader. He then used the printer and his trusty design skills to create this amazingly badass skateboard. Click through for more pics and a video to see how it was made.

From the designer:

It wasn’t quite as straight forward as just a print as the board is longer than our build tray, meaning that we had to cut it into 3 sections, joining it together with some connector pins to ensure accuracy and to give it some strength over a simple butt joint.
