I don't think that the people that monitor these comments are going to appreciate it, if I get any more graphic in order to explain the comedic tension that exists between showing a woman's empty brassiere and the headline "The Best Things to Come Out of a 3D Printer," so I'm going to leave it here.

3-D PRINTING

Excellent post Lauren.  This technology is not a fad and the companies providing equipment; i.e. printers, materials, finishing products, etc will be around for a long time.  The slide show that Lauren has provided represents the "tip of the iceberg" relative to items that can be manufactured.  As I have mentioned before, I feel future advancement will be determined by materials available for "additative manufacturing", improving speed in printing and the size of equipment that can handle large components.  It's a technology that will be with us from here on out.

The n12 bikini "material" looks useful. I would like a coat made out of it. Like modern day chainmail.

The 3D printed jaw is the true victory for 3D printing.

:-) the mind boggles. Personally I'm sceptical of the comfort of printed clothing having used 3D printing for many things. I reckon nothing gets past cotton or silk. Actually one could say that rayon fabric is 3D printed, although not in the usual fashion. Even it isn't comfortable and that's a true fabric.

Lies about 3D printing guns
daveca   5/8/2013 9:33:51 PM
Speaking of lies that wont die, Lauren, why are you spreading lies about 3-D printing of guns?

 

Clearly you have neither engineering or firearms experience.

 

NO ONE will print a fully functioning real firearm with any process.

 

NO ONE can print a working barrel to withstand tens of thousands of PSI.

 

NO ONE.

Who has a 3=D printer that can:

1. Print 4xxx or 5xxx steel?

2.) print it into a HOMOGENEOUS mass? (that ones laughable)

3.) print it with the rifling, precision straightening, crown and chambering?

 

Again, OUTRIGHT LIES

 

This hysterical nonsense has grown from media hype to a full blown conspiracy theory wiht the aid of irresponsible Blogging like yours.

Its also deliberately misleading to claim these are "3-D processes" They are 2-D. Same as the so called 3-D CAD systems, there is no such thing, they are 2-D rendered images with tricks like shading to render a quasi 3-D looking image.

@daveca Parts have been printed for a 3D gun and it was successfully fired. We have previously reported on it, and you can read about one engineer's experiment here. (http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1394&doc_id=249037)

It still looks to me like the 3D dress could stand up by itself.

This field of abstract patterns is really amazing field to work in. With different patterns and different mathematic techniques one can certainly form different artistic 3d designs. This might give artists a whole new field to work on.

I think you should have split your article into two parts. Fashion and shoes and stuff is amazing that they can do that, but is it the best use of it!?
