3D Printing & Imaging Wearables

These ladies have got it: combine form and function in one 3D file, and print out an entire bathing suit! It’s made from flexible nylon12 cured with an SLS process. I love hearing ladies talk about circle-fill algorithms. If you do too, don’t miss the video with designers Jenna Fizel and Mary Haung. It’s probably crazy expensive to make, but I can’t help but want one to try out at the beach this summer. I wonder what kind of tan lines the “textile” pattern would make.
