3D Printed Dress: The Video and Interview, at Paris Fashion Week #3dthursday

Great behind-the-scenes video showing how one of the 3D printed dress projects at Paris Fashion Week was created,
from the Objet Blog:

Following on from our recent post, Wearable 3D Printed Dress at Paris Fashion Week – Iris van Herpen Show, here is our very own catwalk backstage interview with the creators; Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen and professor Neri Oxman from the MIT’s Media Lab. In this interview we discover what makes these two extraordinary women tick.

Both the cape and skirt were 3D printed on the Objet Connex500 multi-material 3D printer. They pieces were divided into 4 parts each, with each part consisting of a flexible rubber-like substrate overlaid with rigid shell-like structures – all printed in the same job. The Connex platform is unique in its ability to simultaneously use different materials for the fabrication and simulation of different end parts and properties.  Enjoy!
