Milling of wake shaper solutions
Along the way we invested in an industrial strength CNC milling machine to help us reduce development time. Typical R&D projects like this usually take between 16 and 36 months to complete. By staying focused and leveraging digital prototyping and testing methods we were able to cut that down to 8 months! In addition to milling rough mockups, we also leveraged 3d printing technology. The wave for wakesurfing in the photo's shown in this newsletter were generated by a super tough 3d printed prototype. Special thanks to Matt & Mike at AdvancedTek for hooking us up.
