MoMA Buys First 3D Printed Kinematics Dress

Nervous System, a company specializing in new methods of creating 3D shapes for printing, just showed off a new product using its fledgling Kinematics system. Kinematics’ web app translates 3D models into flexible sheets made up of interlocking, hinged triangles. The result, thus far, has been a variety of user-designed necklaces, earrings, and bracelets, but the company has now made something much larger and more complex – a complete dress.

The shape of the dress is based on a body scan, so the fit is perfect. The method of construction is also rather interesting; the printer creates the garment so that it’s folded up into itself, allowing the company to use a printer with an print area much smaller than the final product.

The first of these Kinematics dresses has been purchased by New York’s Museum of Modern Art, but users can now create their own designs and contact the company for ordering information here. There are a lot of holes in the existing designs though, so you have better either be very outgoing or plan to wear something under your garment.
