Cornell student rewarded for 3D printed convertible attire

Eric Beaudette, a student of Cornell University's department of fibre science & apparel design in the College of Human Ecology, received an award from YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund for his concept Recycl3-D, according to a release of the university.

Recycl3-D is 3D printed multipurpose clothing which the wearer can alter seamlessly by adding or removing collars, sleeves, hoods, pockets or other accessories depending on the occasion. The fully recyclable garments would virtually eliminate waste found in the typical apparel design and manufacturing process.

Speaking about his concept Beaudette said, “The real perks of 3D printing have not been used to their full potential. I brought together recycling with synthetic blends, customisation from body scanning and optimisation of the manufacturing process to drastically reduce production waste.”

Beaudette created a full-scale prototype garment based on his measurements taken in Cornell's 3-D body scanner. Everything was 3-D-printed at Cornell. Subscribers to his brand would create custom looks by choosing colours, patterns and accessories and when finished with a garment it would be returned to Recycl3-D and converted to raw material for apparel, packaging or other uses.
