Professor Namhun Kim in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering at UNIST has recently developed a new 3D printed electric boat called ‘3D Willy’. 3D Willy, equipped with a lightweight battery pack, has been launched successfully and test-driven in Gamak pond.
The innovation is currently put on display at the 3D Printing Tech Festa 2018, which is held at the University of Ulsan from September 13 to 15, 2018. Hosted by Ulsan City and sponsored by the Ulsan Information Industry Promotion Agency, the exhibition provides a variety of attractions in relation to the 3D printing industry.
Professor Kim said, “In search for a new 3D printing creation after Rhino, a boat came across my mind. We hope 3D Willy can draw attention from various people in the shipbuilding and 3D printing industries.”
This innovation will be broadcast by via EBS Education Journal, tonight at 11:35 p.m.
