Art couture designer Larisa Katz and 3D designer Patrick Römgens used Blender and an Ultimaker 3D Printer to create a jacket. The work was featured on the Royal Ascot Ladies’ Day this June 2013 in London.

Patrick writes:

For this project we’ve used a Rapman 3.2 Ultimate Kit and an Ultimaker Rev. 3. and lots of flexible and normal PLA filament. Both have been printing for almost 3 weeks non stop (seriously 24/7) to get this project done.

As the article on 3Ders.org mentions, we’ve started with taking a full body 3D scan of Larisa. This was done with Skanect 1.4 and a Carmine 1.09 from Primesense and gave amazing results. We than polished the scan and removed things we didn´t need from it and that´s where the Blender-’pleasure’ started….

The freestyle working environment of Blender was really what this project needed, it would´ve been impossible to create this jacket on CAD programs or other not so advanced 3D modeling software, Blender was the only package that gave me the full mountain of tools to get this natural and organic looking jacket modeled.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
