Stand Up Paddleboard

Post by JDaVinci »

I wanted to try out the 2 sided cut feature in Vectric Cut 3D. This turned out to be a perfect application.

My wife said she wanted a Stand-up Paddleboard. I did a little research, and then said... "I can do that."

So I modeled out a board after looking at several designs online, I couldn't find one I loved. So I took some of my favorite features, and made a 3D model.

Then to make a 12' long board like I wanted. I had to make a front and back section to cut from EPS Foam.
(my wife would have been fine with a smaller one. But according to my weight and the research I did, for me to ride, it needed to be 12' long.)

I used the doublesided cut feature in Vectric Cut 3D and made top and bottom for the front half, and top and bottom for the back. I added tabs to hold it in place durring cutting, this was more crucial on the front, as it curves up slightly, and therefore wasn't cutting a flat plane.

I finished the board with epoxy resin and fiberglass. I actually made two, because her sister wanted one too.

That's really cool! I'm thinking about making one of these myself. Can you give me some more details as to the dimensions and such? Also, I was under the impression that the epoxy would eat away the styrofoam. Is that true, or does it matter?

Beautifully finished surface! I am also wondering how did you apply the finish. Would you mind explaining the process of covering the EPS with epoxy resin. Thanks.
