EXCIDIUM shoe collection incorporates 3D scanned and colorFabb woodFill printed parts #3DxFashion #3DThursday #3DPrinting #3DScanning
As high fashion accommodates itself to the use of 3D printing as a useful production route for clothing and accessories, we will see more examples like this shoe collection where the printed element plays a specific role (executing a complex shape in a chosen material) within an overall design that involves other elements produced using other methods, contributing complementary material properties to better accommodate the human who will wear it.
In this collection high-tech meets crafts, Chris sought out the expertise of technicians to help him with 3d scanning and printing. Pelser-hartman did the 3d scanning and Peggy Bannenberg helped put together the 3d model and printed the models at iFabrica in Amsterdam, an open workspace for makers.
The platform wedge of the shoe is designed as one piece and can be printed with an Ultimaker 3d printer using colorFabb woodFill. Further more the shoe features calf leather upper and a acrylic/copper heel insert…
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!

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.
