NYU Tandon Students Utilize Digital Fabrication and 3D Printing to Design Winning Concrete Canoe

From simple PLA to glass and metal, there are all sorts of interesting 3D printing materials being used these days. I find concrete to be one of the more interesting materials, strictly because I know that there still are people who think 3D printing is only good for making little plastic characters, and not actual buildings. Concrete 3D printing completely debunks that assumption: there are 3D printed houses made out of concrete, and the durable material has also been used to make bridges, benches, a firewall, and even… a canoe?
