I picked up a new-to-me 2005 Centurion SV230 this year and it didn't come with a bimini. While shopping for one, it suddenly dawned on me that I should just print one. Yes, print one with a 3D printer.

I chose to copy Sewlong's patented Folding Canopy Top. It's a great design. All of the black ABS plastic pieces you see were printed with a Stratasys Dimension 3D printer. The tubing is 1" aluminum. I'll be using Sunbrella for the canvas. Here are pics of my progress so far.
