You're gonna need a bigger boat? UMaine has printer for that

  You're gonna need a bigger boat? UMaine has printer for that ORONO, Maine (AP) — The world's largest 3D printer and the largest object ever printed have been unveiled at the University of Maine. The university showed off a 25-foot, 5,000-pound boat Thursday that researchers think is just the beginning of the type of product that companies can bring to the market faster with 3D printing. The boat was printed at the university's Advanced Structures & Composite Center. The school and Oak Ridge Laboratory in Tennessee are collaborating on the project, which aims to help businesses innovate with larger, faster prototypes.

ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat, the longest-running sitcom about an Asian-American family in broadcast television history, will end this season, a source close to the show told Vulture. According to this source, ABC notified production and the cast this week that it will not order more episodes and the show will bow out next year, with its 14th and 15th episodes serving as the series finale.

As the show’s ratings declined in recent years, ABC moved Fresh Off the Boat from its Tuesday night family block to a revived TGIF block on Fridays, but that hasn’t improved its performance. The show’s sixth-season renewal this spring was marred by controversy, after star Constance Wu tweeted she was “literally crying” when the new season was announced. Wu later clarified that she wasn’t upset because Fresh Off the Boat was renewed, but because the renewal meant giving up another project that she really wanted to do.

When Fresh Off the Boat premiered in 2015, it was the first broadcast sitcom about an Asian-American family since Margaret Cho’s All-American Girl in 1994. Led by creator Nahnatchka Khan, who serves as showrunner, and executive producer Melvin Mar, it will finish its run with six seasons and 116 produced episodes. The single-camera comedy was the first show to celebrate Chinese New Year and the first network show to travel to Asia.

Loosely based on Eddie Huang’s memoir of the same title, Fresh Off the Boat stars Randall Park and Wu as Taiwanese immigrants who move to Orlando in the ’90s to open a restaurant and raise their three sons. Huang narrated the first season but left the show in the second cycle, just as it began finding its stride and viewers tuned in every week to see Wu deliver Jessica’s memorable one-liners. Viewers also watched the show’s three child actors, Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler, and Ian Chen, who play Eddie, Emery, and Evan Huang, respectively, grow into adolescence and evolve as actors.

ABC and 20th Century Fox Television, which produces the show, declined to comment.
