Today we had the pleasure of having supermodel Coco Rocha visit the Shapeways factory in NYC to investigate how 3D printing will change the world of fashion in the very near future.
After quickly learning how to program our 3D printers (not our first 3D printing engineer to work in heels) we got down to discussing some of our recent adventures in 3D printed fashion with the gown for Dita Von Teese, the collection with Kimberly Ovitz and thousands of designs from the Shapeways community inspiring designers around the world.
Coco is known for her business acumen, charitable work and tech savvy. She has appeared on the cover of a kazillion magazines (check out her site for proof) a number of tv shows AND was mentioned by Kanye West…

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
