The final fashion piece was made up of 26 different sections and took approximately 170 hours to print in Flexible Plastic (PLA). A version was also created comprising of only five parts for printing on a large format 3D Printer, allowing one to streamline its production.
We wanted to showcase how disruptive 3D printing has become and how it has empowered the end user. We had challenged ourselves to create the design on a simple desktop 3D printer and the experience has proven to us that you don’t require access to an expensive large 3D printer to create unique wearable pieces. Merely using highly accessible domestic 3D printers we were able to create a fashion piece that reflected our vision.
