Flowing 3D printed dress


3D printing and dressing making are difficult disciplines to successfully bring together. However, the team at nervous systems have created a directly 3D printed dress which drapes naturally over the body and moves like a fabric when the wearer walks.
Linked segments are used to provide the dresses flexibility. This flexibility is also exploited in the manufacturing, the dress design is folded into a compact form so that it can be made within the confines of the 3D printing unit they used.

The following video shows the process from beginning to end
