Innovative Fashion Collection Designed with 3D Printing Technology

We have seen 3D printing in a variety of forms including unique floral arrangements, miniature figurines, and creative sculptures. Recently, designer Noa Raviv took things to an entirely new level by using the innovative process to create a fashion collection. Raviv developed her series, Hard Copy, as part of her student work at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design. The artist drew upon computerized patterns of grids and lines as the inspiration for the modern styles.

The 3D portions of the designs were created using Stratasys' Objet Connex500 Multi-Material 3D printing technology. Raviv combined the bold black and white graphic patterns with pops of bright orange to form the bodices and ruffled shapes. She then paired the exaggerated tops with simple straight or sheer skirts. “The tension between the real and the virtual, between 2D and 3D, inspired me to create this collection,” explained Raviv.
