The World's First
3D Printed Golf Shafts
High-Performance Putters with Innovative Aesthetics
The Snarr 3D Advantage
Snarr3D Inc. utilizes additive manufacturing technology, also known as 3D printing, to fabricate high-performance putters with increased aesthetic appeal. The golf shaft, commonly referred to as the engine of the golf club, directly drives performance and has a significant effect on the speed, accuracy, and repeatability of every putt. Snarr3D's patent pending technology and data-driven approach unlocks a new era of golf shaft design, resulting in next-generation putters showcasing innovative aesthetics.
Enhance your game with a Snarr3D putter
Optimized weight distribution for more consistent putting
With full control of the weight distribution throughout the putter shaft, Snarr3D's innovative weighting techniques promote better speed control and strike location for more made putts.
Innovative shaft textures for better looking golf equipment
Additive manufacturing allows for custom textures and patterns to be added to the golf shaft offering never seen before aesthetic options.
Data-driven design for improved putting performance
Independent studies performed by Snarr3D enable better-informed putter design resulting in enhanced feel and data backed results.
The Additive Manufacturing Process
Also known as 3D Printing
Exhibited in this video is the additive manufacturing process known as powder bed fusion that Snarr3D utilizes to fabricate their golf shafts. The process begins with a blade spreading a fresh layer of powder over the build plate. A laser then scans the cross section of the part(s) being made, melting the particles and subsequently fusing them together upon cooling. Another layer of powder is then spread and the process is repeated layer-by-layer to build up the three dimensional part(s).

Additive manufacturing enables the innovative Snarr3D shaft design process
Eliminates geometric constraints enabling unique aesthetic features
Cost effective, low volume manufacturing allowing increased shaft options
Digital, on-demand fabrication reduces product development time
Snarr3D Inc. was founded by two brothers, Scott and Patrick Snarr, who are currently Mechanical Engineering PhD candidates at the University of Texas at Austin. Since they were young, golf has been used as an activity to bring their family closer while also satisfying their competitive spirit.
Now, they are combining their love of golf with their additive manufacturing expertise to bring high-performance, aesthetically innovative putters to market.
