Those who will be in the New York City Area on Sept 12 have the opportunity to catch Matter that Moves: An Exhibition of 3D-Printed Fashion @ Eyebeam on Sept 12 presented by Eyebeam and Shapeways:
On Friday, September 12, Eyebeam and Shapeways proudly present an exciting new collection of 3D-printed fashion garments. These pieces were produced by ten fashion designers, engineers, and media artists from across North America and Asia that came together in July 2014 to learn tech skills and collaboratively design work at the intersection of fashion and emerging technology! The exhibition takes place at Hotel Particulier in Manhattan, NY and is sponsored by CNL Mannequins and Joseph Cady.
The four exhibited garments were developed by the multidisciplinary design teams using a combination of 3D print manufacturing and traditional fashion design techniques. Each piece functions as an extension or augmentation of the body, exploring concepts such as fashion as a “second skin,” as well as responsive and kinetic structures that can change shape based on the body or environmental conditions.
The Computational Fashion Master Class was a ten-day intensive co-organized by Eyebeam and Shapeways. The class was hosted by NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, and supported in part by The Rockefeller Foundation Cultural Innovation Fund, CNL Mannequins, and Formlabs.
The class was taught by a group of leading designers from fashion, architecture, industrial design, and digital art, including Casey Rehm, Bradley Rothenberg, Lauren Slowik, Lisa Kori Chung, Ryan Kittleson, Arthur Young-Spivey, Gabi Asfour, and Sabine Seymour….

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! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. 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!
