Deck hardware has come full circle. Now, designers favour simple designs that make use of high-performance materials over complex concepts. We spoke to Nicolas Goldenberg of Morfrac Systems, the mind behind the disruptive morfblock, about the evolution of deck hardware and his predictions for the future.

MORFRAC and 3D Printing -  A Success Story

In recent years, 3D printing has revolutionised manufacturing processes. Expiring patents have caused 3D printing costs to plunge and quality to soar, granting opportunities for small-scale manufacturers to experiment – and excel – with 3D printing.

 

We spoke to Nicolas Goldenberg, founder of Morfrac Systems, to discuss how 3D printing has contributed to the success of their iconic product, the morfblock.

At upffront.com we’re big fans of the Morf Block. The lightweight, 3D-printed block started as a DIY kit and has expanded into two ranges: high performance and high load.

 

We spoke to the man at the source - Nicolas Goldenberg, from Argentina - who told us about his journey so far, his ongoing projects and the future of Morfrac Systems. 

We are constantly reporting on the latest innovations in the marine industry which offer weight savings whilst, at the same time, increasing safety factors. The result: lighter, faster, safer and more exciting sailing.
