Brian Peters, Protolabs’ chief marketing officer, said, “GE then took his vision and helped produce the CAD [computer-aided design] files, what’s needed for us to be able to produce the dress.” Protolabs uses “a lot of GE equipment and we have the expertise and design capabilities to actually produce the various items that you’ll see in these dresses and pieces.”

Twelve months — and much draping, sketching, 3D-body scanning, computer engineering and manufacturing later — five celebrities walked the red carpet at the 2019 Met Gala on Monday in the custom 3D-printed designs. Posen and two other men wore cufflinks and accessories.
