At Home With Danit Peleg and Her 3D Printed Fashion Design Dresses.
I always felt most creative working when I worked from home…
It was during the compiling of her graduate collection at fashion school, that Danit Peleg decided to design an all 3D printed, ready-to-wear fashion collection entirely from home.
Danit Peleg has been well received for her innovative approach, her work has subsequently been featured at the 2016 Paralympics Opening Ceremony.
Her creations are now available for online purchase. What it is that makes her creations so special is something you need to see for yourself – even better if you could touch!
With closer observation, you will notice just how “intricately simple’ Peleg’s designs are; and ultimately positions the scope for fashion design and wearable fabrics on another level.
It was the Filaflex 3D filament that helped Danit realize her goal in finding a material suitable for her 3D fabric; something stretchable as well as pliable enough for wearing as clothing. In fact, when worn in some cases, here dresses even suggest a bouncing motion with the wearer’s movement.
To get started with any 3D printed project you’ll need to go through the process of choosing the right filament, which is the material a 3D Printer uses to produce the physical object you have decided to reproduce. Filaflex allowed Peleg that flexibility she needed for her 3D fabric, something stretchable as well as pliable enough for wearing as clothing.
3D Printing First Steps.
Assuming that you already have the skills or a known process for converting your designs from drawing to a print-ready 3D model. Your next step to producing a physical representation of your design is to hook-up your computer to a 3D Printer.
Connecting your computer to a 3D Printer in its simplest form is through a USB connection. However, you may be required to install the necessary software beforehand. MakerBot is one 3D Printer supplier that provides support for a simple ‘get started right out of the box’ type approach and are worth checking out.
