When are 3d printed dresses going mainstream? Imagine if you could draw a 3d garment specifically for your use, adapted to your body, and designed uniquely for yourself.
This is what I had in mind when in 2019, when I drew a 3d blouse for a friend with a flexible material (TPU/FLEXY). Could I create flexible layers of clothing specifically for one person?
Using a store mannequin as a base, I started this long drawing, taking a couple of hours per day. If I had to count the exact number of hours, I would say this took me around 12 to 16 hours of 3Doodler sketching, and some 50 strands of FLEXY filament.
What else can I say about this wearable sculpture? Here’s some pictures of the blouse worn by Jenny through the streets of Brussels.
It’s a really exciting time for creative folk — I’m sure we’ll see more and more custom 3d drawn garments in the future. If you want to see more of my 3d pen stuff, start here!
Have you created any wearables with your 3d pen? Let me know in a comment below, and send me some pictures!
