Have you ever taken a look at your closet and not wanted to wear anything you own? Or gone shopping and found nothing that works for you? Wouldn't it be so cool if you could just 3D print the perfect outfit right from the comfort of your own home?
Danit Peleg thought it would be.
The fashion design student decided she would 3D print an entire collection using only home printers for her graduate collection at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design.
This is was no easy task. Not only did she know very little about 3D-printing technology, but printing entire outfits from a home scale 3D printer hasn't been done before.
After tons of research and experiments, she decided that a fairly flexible plastic called FilaFlex would be the right material for her designs. The outfits she wanted to make included dresses, skirts, tops and even shoes.
Using home printers and materials that anyone can purchase, she started printing her designs.
After about 2,000 hours of printing, the entire collection was finished. Check out all five outfits below:
1. Outfit 1
2. Outfit 2
3. Outfit 3
4. Outfit 4
5. Outfit 5
Here's the entire collection together:
This collection brings hope that one day we'll all be printing our own clothes from home.
