A 3D-Printed Camper Exists, Perhaps the Most 2018 Thing We’ve Seen Yet

A team of intrepid inventors in Saskatchewan 3D-printed a camping trailer last month, making it the largest 3D print of all time. Meanwhile, here in New York, I am still have trouble printing things in landscape mode.

The good folks at Create Cafe not only 3D-printed an actual camper trailer, they did it all in 230 hours.

Using a custom made ERECTORBOT printer, they broke the record for largest 3D printed object with their great feat of engineering. 13 feet long, six feet wide and 600 pounds, it is 3.5 times as large as the previous record holder.

“It’s kind of surreal,” Randy Janes, owner of Wave of the Future 3D, told Global News. “If you’re familiar with 3D printing, a little table top item that’s five inches tall can take upwards of one day. I just printed an entire trailer in just over a week.”

The trailer has yet to be outfitted with any sort of windows or amenities but the plan is to do so eventually and make it available for retail. Right now it could be used as an ice fishing hut, it doesn’t require a chassis and because it’s seamless, it won’t leak.

Hopefully we’ll get some updated photos of the fully equipped version soon, until then let’s just sit back and marvel at the wonders of technology. That or go and check out more photos on Curbed.
