These 14 Are The Best 3D Printed Dresses

Posted on Jan 9, 2016

…according to us.

We have all heard and seen printers, Most of us have one either in our home or office. They come in handy when you want a paper copy of a document. But these days, printers have evolved and can print things in 3 dimensions, things that have depth like prosthetics, human tissues, food, decorative items etc. Industries are now exploring how they can incorporate 3D printing and so is the fashion industry.

You can now print clothes instead of sewing them. You know what? A time might come when 3D printed dresses will become main stream fashion and the sewn ones will become vintage. We are really excited about the prospects of 3D printing in fashion. Most of the dresses we have seen are mostly futuristic but it is only a matter of time before we have regular printed dresses that we can pick up from any store.

Oh well, we have seen some amazing designs and we will share with you below.

This dress is even available for download for those into 3d printing. It was made from a desktop
printer to prove that nothing is too large that it requires an industrial 3d printer. The dress’s outstanding point is that it looks delicate and lace like.

This dress was metal plated for a bronze finish

This Intel-Edison-powered dress records your actions. Talk about wearable technology in the true sense of it. The headpiece tracks your attention level and lets people know when not to disturb. It also has another sensor that knows when you feel that your space is being invaded. It will give off 120watts of light telling you to back off. This reminds me so much of a cyborg, it looks like something they would wear. Oh well, moving on…
