After having my article on 3D printing published in the NRG Journal last summer, I was pleased to see some actual parts show up in the Spring 2015 issue.


Hubert Mallet's article on an RNLI lifeboat includes a pair of engines which are 3D printed. And I think this is an excellent example of using the best tool (or process) for the job. The engines are "modern" mechanical items that lend themselves to modern modeling techniques. On the other hand, I would usually avoid 3D printing a part which simply needs, nay, demands, to be shaped from wood. And Mssr. Mallet has done the right thing here by shaping his model's wood hull from ... wood.


Nicely done, Hubert...
