Materialise Helps Fashion Designers 3D Print Dresses for “Manus x Machina” Exhibit at the MET

Since October of last year, we’ve been well-aware of the influence that 3D printing technology would have at the technology-driven fashion exhibit that recently opened in the New York City-based Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibit, which is called Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology, was put together by the Costume Institute’s […]

There were a lot of 3D printer manufacturers on hand at the Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo New York, some familiar and some not so familiar.

3D Fashion: New Research Project Wants the Fashion of the Future to be 3D Printed

In the past few years we have seen 3D printing used to create some amazing things that most of us probably couldn’t have dreamed of happening in our lifetime. The technology has been used to 3D print cars, entire houses, food, custom medications, consumer products and soon they will even be 3D printing living tissue. […]

Open Source Fashion Manifesto Asks You to 3D Print Your Clothes & Rock the Runway in a Brave New Fashion World

Open Source Fashion Manifesto Asks You to 3D Print Your Clothes & Rock the Runway in a Brave New Fashion World

I love a good manifesto—whether it’s political or personal. Assuming it’s not of a feverish or crazy Unibomber-ish slant, interesting ideas are usually presented by progressive writers offering an aim for change. I figure if they went to enough trouble to outline an official mission, it’s worth taking a look. And that’s definitely the case with ‘Open […]

Nature in its infinite forms seems at first blush to be random and chaotic. There doesn’t seem to be an overriding logic to it all. And yet, looking closer we see familiar patterns emerge, mathematical sequences that our minds perceive as beauty. You see it in delicate flower petals, in seed heads, shells, the human face, […]

Ohne Titel Wows at New York Fashion Week with Shapeways 3D Printed Dress

3D printing in fashion… Is it a new trend or is it a novelty? Often I am asked if I think 3D printed garments will replace traditional textiles and manufacturing. The simple answer is no. I believe that 3D printing will offer an alternative to traditional fashion manufacturing, and indeed will complement it. The fashion […]

The James A. Farley Post Office Building in New York, just across the street from Penn Station, bears an oft-quoted inscription over its entrance: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” Apparently, this applies not only to postal carriers, but to the well-heeled […]

3D Printing Will Disrupt Fast Fashion, Help Eliminate Sweatshops, Empower Consumers

Industry is, of course, completely centered on supply and demand. And while there are many facets to manufacturing and business, few areas are as fast-paced or as fickle as the fashion industry. Our simple, and often (ironically) unattractive vanity promotes an entire economy based on greed and speed–as well as seeing who can replicate and […]

3D Print Provides Models for Unmade Knitwear

The images conjured up in the minds of most people when they think about knitting involve little old ladies in rocking chairs working on afghans or bulky sweaters while chatting amiably. The world of commercially produced knitwear, however, is one that relies on the latest in technology. There are only three ways of turning fibers […]

Who’s Afraid of 3D Printing? Kanye West Evidently Is!

If you sat down and made a “pros” and “cons” list of the ways in which the internet has changed or at least had a notable impact on your life, what might your list look like? Would it be heavy on one side or the other? Fairly even? I found an amusing list on which […]

3D Printed Adrenaline Dress from Chromat Knows When You Feel Stressed

No matter what the material, at some point in human history people have used it for clothing. Lady Gaga wore a dress made of meat to the VMAs, Japanese Samuri had armor made from paper, and recently a line of air-purifying dresses made out of pollution absorbing flexible concrete have been causing a buzz as Catalytic Clothing.

3DS’ New Fabricate Application: 4 Steps to Wearable Fashion Right Off a Cube 3D Printer

We’ve seen 3D printed fashion already, tromping down runways and looking fierce (or some that’s more ferocious than fierce)…but let’s be honest: like most runway ensembles, it really isn’t meant for daily wear. The idea of being able to turn to a desktop machine for everyday clothing choices still seems a little bit fantastic, but we’re […]

We’ve seen 3D printed shoes before–what is interesting to note is that these stories are becoming increasingly common as the technology becomes more accepted as a method for footwear design and production. However, it is still sufficiently novel that these kinds of projects are attention grabbing not only for their design but for the simple […]

Back in July, you may recall a story we did on a young woman who goes by the moniker, “SexyCyborg”. She had created a very skimpy LED Hikaru Skirt with the help of a 3D printer. When looking at SexyCyborg, the last thing you would expect, would be for her to have a nerdy side. […]

3D Printed Footwear the Key for Prototyping & Experimentation

Five years ago, shoe designer Rachael Noon started to experiment with the creation of outdoor footwear using injection molding as the fabrication technique. However, she soon found that the creation of the molds required a greater investment of both time and capital than were really feasible, especially when it came to trying something so experimental.
