Guest Curator Emmett Lalish has this to say about this 3DxMechanicals project: “Not exactly mechanical, but MUSE the corset is awesome: this is the perfect marriage of 3D scanning and printing. It really shows off the customizability of 3D printing where it is most needed and often difficult to achieve. As the material science develops, this kind of thing could really become practical.”
Valentine’s day, valentine’s day… valentine’s day.
The people who organise the now famous “3DPrintShow” didn’t think of people like me when they decided the date for their first exhibition in New-York City : February 12 to 15…
It took me a while to realise that, as a Paris based exhibitor and speaker of the show, I wouldn’t be with my beloved girlfriend for the 14th. So, I decided that this year’s Valentine’s day would be early… at least for us.
One great Valentine’s day present (that can be enjoyed by both the boy and the girl) is “lingerie”. Paris is the heaven of beautiful lingerie with famous french brands such has Aubade and Chantal Thomas. You would be surprised by how much these small pieces of material can cost.The only real problem is that you are not allowed to make a mistake on the size. It would send the wrong message…
I found one way to avoid this puzzle : 3D Printed lingery from a 3D scan!
Here is a step by step project on how to create the most personal Valentine’s day present for your girlfriend, using your 3D printer.
