We’ve been part of an epic project with Tauranga City Council helping to build 3D skateable sculptures at the Mount Maunganui Destination Skatepark – an initiative to improve citywide skate facilities.

The sculptures include a quarterpipe, skateable art ledges and the largest feature, The Wave, which is almost 12m long and 2.9m high! The Wave was made up of seven segments and only took around five hours to print in total. By using QOROX’s 3D printed materials Tauranga City Council and skatepark designer, RICH Landscapes, were able to design unique features for the skatepark that would have been more expensive and time-consuming with traditional production methods.

The 3D printed skateable features are made up of ‘Q-Ink’ (QOROX 3D printing ink), which is locally mixed and made of a special low-carbon material which produces 30% less emissions than normal concrete.

We were proud to contribute to this project and are excited for the Tauranga community to have an iconic skatepark featuring the world’s largest 3D skate sculptures!
