Inspired by the coexistence of nature and urban technology as well as 3D printed fashion in France, Japan and the United States, Alvarez wanted to create a unique 3D accessories collection for men and women. The collection features caps, bracelets, glasses and toecaps and also dresses that incorporate a central plastic structure and knits.
The collection was created with the help of Stratasys authorized reseller USM Colombia S.A., using the Objet260 Connex and Objet500 Connex multi-material 3D Printers as well as the Objet Eden 3D Printer.
The ability to print with multiple materials having different physical properties was the most important criteria for Alvarez when selecting the Connex 3D printing technology to bring his collection to life. This requirement is also evident in the work of other distinguished fashion designers such as Iris van Herpen and Rem D Koolhaas from the Netherlands and Japan’s Yuima Nakazato, and professor, designer and architect Neri Oxman.
Using Stratasys 3D Printers, Alvarez was able to incorporate complex geometric design practices and techniques in his work and prototype the final results for instant verification. “People who attended the show and those who came closer to see the products were amazed; many of them had never imagined that fashion objects and accessories could be 3D printed,” said Alvarez.
Stratasys Ltd. headquartered in Minneapolis, Minn. and Rehovot, Israel, manufactures 3D printers and materials for prototyping and production. The company’s patented FDM and PolyJet processes produce prototypes and manufactured goods directly from 3D CAD files or other 3D content.
Systems include 3D printers for idea development, prototyping and direct digital manufacturing. Stratasys subsidiaries include MakerBot and Solidscape and the company operates the RedEye on Demand digital-manufacturing service. Stratasys has more than 1500 employees, holds over 500 granted or pending additive manufacturing patents globally, and has received more than 20 awards for its technology and leadership.
