As a longtime industry leader in 3D printing, Stratasys is usually associated with quality technology, accompanied by forward-thinking users bringing us a wide range of complex projects. Associated with everything from applications in aerospace to electronics, we have also seen a fascinating variety of innovations within the art and fashion world via Stratasys 3D printers—especially with the recent trend in direct to textile fabrication techniques.
Now, Stratasys is working with two new fashion designers, Julia Koerner and Ganit Goldstein. This collaboration follows on the heels not only of their unveiling the new ability to 3D print onto fabric, but also new examples of such techniques via other designers like threeASFOUR and Travis Fitch. The announcement at New York Fashion Week last year and following haute couture works were apparently just a foreshadowing of the innovative work to come.
As 3D printing continues to offer designers greater freedom in creating complex geometries with fabric, the European Union has funded a research project called Re-FREAM, an effort uniting designers, engineers, and scientists as they combine 3D printing and fashion.
To begin, Koerner has just launched her ARID collection at the ARS Electronica Festival, being held from September 9 to 13 in …
