the school where my grommets attend has about 6 3-d printers. They use MAYA free software.
If I can figure out how to use it, perhaps it would be a good way to evaluate small scale foil design...?
Obviously it wouldn't have the strength/light weight but might give you an idea of some general characteristics prior to laying one up in carbon?
My evil master plan would be a small tri (maybe bigger than a weta) with shock absorbing foils to keep ride stable and possibly auto-adjust (like a moth). Heck... maybe get Google to sail it for me?
Or (more probable) maybe print up a few RC models to evaluate before trying to resin infuse one like Jake did
