add:north - 3D printed parts for a race boat

Add:North is proud to be the filament sponsor for Swedish sailor, Joakim Brantingson, who’s participating in one of the world’s most dangerous sailing races – the 2023 edition of Mini-Transat.

From the beginning of this project a huge focus was put towards working on sustainability, both with materials and partners. The core material of the hull in the boat, named Estelle, (after the Swedish princess), is made from recycled PET-bottles. Clothing, technical ropes and the 3D-printed parts onboard are just some examples of gear supplied from the different project partners which are also made from recycled materials.
