Supermodel Lindsay Ellingson will be wearing the 3D printed outfit that was designed to exactly fit her body based on a 3D scan. The outfit includes a corset, wings and hat, each of the components is made from hundreds of snowflakes which interlock to move like a fabric or stand rigid to creat the sculptural angel wings. The entire outfit was 3D Printed in lightweight Nylon then encrusted with millions (yes millions) of Swarovski crystals then paired with Victoria’s Secret lingerie. The overall effect is a glimmering, icy outfit that perfectly showcases the ability of 3D printing beautiful, complex forms.
…For those who would like a little of the 3D printed snowflake magic for themselves, Bradley has designed the Snowflake Fractal Bracelet based on the same snowflake algorithm available exclusively through Shapeways.
…Take a look at the video behind the scenes at the design and fabrication process at the Shapeways factory, see the wings being excavated from the Nylon powder and a little about the collaboration between Bradley Rothenberg, Victoria’s Secret, Swarovski and Shapeways.
