Creaform and French students re-design the Kiteboatspeed project

Re-designing the Kiteboatspeed project

Creaform brings its reverse engineering knowledge for the creation of an Olympic level trimaran prototype that will be adapted for athletes with disabilities. Thanks to MetraSCAN 3D and to reverse engineering, Creaform and the students of Cachan’s École Normale Supérieure (France) are working on the metamorphosis of a new type of trimaran: the Kiteboadspeed (KBS). Redesigning the hull, they will assign the trimaran a new mission and adapt the latter for skippers with disabilities. To do so, Creaform is in charge of the 3D scanning while the students are taking care of the reverse engineering.
