Intricate 3D-Printed Dress Brings Couture To The Home [Video]
The Bristle Dress by architect and designer Francis Bitonti can be made entirely on a MakerBot Replicator 2 printer.
Brooklyn-based designer Francis Bitonti has designed a dress that can be customized for the wearer and 3D-printed anywhere with a Makerbot.
Bitonti created the Bristle Dress with the students at his studio’s New Skins Workshop Series. During the workshop students explore new computational design techniques and experiment with digital modeling and 3D printing technologies. The Bristle Dress is the second couture dress that came out of the workshop series. Last summer BItonti and the workshop participants designed the Verlan Dress.
