Roundtable discussion returns to the Metstrade show


After a successful inaugural event, a roundtable on boat construction and materials returns to this year’s Metstrade show. The roundtable takes place Nov. 13-14.

It will highlight rapid manufacturing and 3D printing and will present an opportunity for technicians and yacht designers to exchange ideas, according to a Metstrade statement.

The presentations will take place in two sessions: 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 13 and 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Nov. 14.

The first session will feature structural engineers, including Luca Olivari of Olivari Engineering and Valerio Corniani of Diab, yacht designers Jeroen Wats of G-Force Yachts and others. The main topic for the second session will be the use of rapid prototyping and 3D printing to reduce the time and costs of traditional technology. Moi Composites will present technology capable of 3D printing high-performance thermosetting composite parts. Additionally, Massimo Musio Sale will talk about additive manufacturing for boatbuilding.
