Our partner La Ferme 3D participated to the monaco energy boat challenge as a partner of the MINES ParisTech – Ecole des Mines de Paris team.
They worked together to create and print a revolutionary propeller, resistant and adapted to the boat to try to win the race.
This propeller was printed on a Stream Ultra Supercharged in Carbon system, a material currently under development by the 3D farm.
3D printing made it possible to produce a custom propeller quickly and at a reasonable price. The propeller is adapted to the engine/boat combination in order to optimize its efficiency, i.e. its energy consumption for a given speed.
