Until now, 3D printing in Fashion has been quite complicated to actually wear, Iris van Herpen’s amazing designs are still not flexible enough to be worn in everyday life (infinite sadness). But this is the past, welcoming Fabricate, the new DIY printing solution from 3D Systems’ Cubify.
Announcing the launch of a holistic new discipline, connecting breakthroughs in every aspect of fashion design. Pattern-making, textile design–even the filament, the 3D printing material itself–everything is reinvented.
In 3 easy steps, 1) download and 3D print Cube-ready designs and take your sartorial game to the next level; 2) 3D print a footprint layer, then add mesh fabric the size of the print plate. Next, print the texture on top of the mesh so it is sandwiched in; 3) After your print is complete, sew the mesh fabric.
