Anouk Wipprecht and Polaire invite you to design a part of open source 3D printed dress. (And check out how they will be using our NeoPixel Rings!) From 3Ders.org:
Instead of keeping the design process to herself, 3D printed fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht wants to invent a dress with over 150 different elements, all created by makers around the world.
“Join our open source element dress!” In collaboration with Polaire, Wipprecht is inviting people to design these 150 parts which will be connected all together into one dress.
Wipprecht will provide a base file of a simple element, which is available for download through Tinkercad, a 3D modeling app from Autodesk. How the dress takes shape is up to you!
To get started you may download the file, and remodel the element. You can add some extras on top and create a whole new feature. You can also just simply print it in a cool color or material. You are encouraged to add things that “can communicate a message for you, whether that is a symbol like a small heart, typographical like a text or a name, or something more abstract, architectural or mechanic.” according to Wipprecht….
