Larisa Katz, the designer and purveyor of couture art, wanted something ‘a bit different’ for Royal Ascot Ladies’ Day, which took place last month. As you can see from the image of her in her outfit below — she achieved her goal in and with spectacular fashion!
The hat, dress and jacket were all designed by Larisa, in collaboration with designer Patrick Römgens from Phuntec.
But it is the jacket that is the primary focus of this post, because, believe it or not, it was 3D printed.
The jacket, as you might expect is completely bespoke and customized to fit Larisa precisely courtesy of a full 3D body scan of the designer herself. From the scan data it was possible to create the right shape in terms of fit and function and from there create the intricate designs (the form) within the 3D model using Blender and Sketchup software.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
