It’s no secret that 3D printing is improving by leaps and bounds. Designers are leveraging the abilities of 3D printers to create incredible things, and Michaella Janse van Vuuren is using a new printer – a Objet500 Connex3 – to create dazzling fashion. The print has three nozzles which means it can print in three materials at the same time or in different colors of the same material.
Van Vuuren has used the mixture of textures and colors to develop her new “Garden of Eden” line. It includes the intricate and gorgeous corset pictured above as well as some eye-catching footwear pictured after the break. I can’t help but imagine what this technology will do for cosplay as 3D printers become more widely available and more affordable.
Watch a video showcasing what the printer can do after the break.
