Peleg is helping Gerber develop and evolve its YuniquePLM and AccuMark line of products in their efforts to make it easy for anyone in the world to design, produce and sell great products.
Speaking about the future of 3D printed garments, Peleg told Elizabeth King, vice president, digital solutions community and ecosystem at Gerber Technology, “3D printing is evolving fast. I imagine an incredible world where people will be able to download and print wearable, comfortable and environmentally-friendly clothes from home or from ‘printing boutiques’ next to their homes.”
However, there are two major challenges in 3D printing that need to be solved – the materials are very basic and desktop printers are very slow, according to Peleg. “I hope to be involved in helping solve these two challenges in the coming year,” she added.
Peleg recently created a unique 3D printed dress for Amy Purdy, a double leg amputee dancer, who performed a Samba solo at the Rio 2016 Paralympics opening ceremony. Her inspiration for the new collection was 'The Birth of Venus' painting by Boticelli.
“I got inspired from this painting because I feel that, in many cases, technology enables a sort of ‘rebirth’ for the Paralympic athletes and with the help of technology they can push their limits. The painting is also the reason why I chose to print the dress in a nude color. I took the diamond shapes present in the painting's composition and used them while designing the structure of the dress,” said Peleg.
“For this new dress (and upcoming collection), I worked closely with the AccuMark 3D team. Together we developed a faster workflow that is going to be the next generation of patternmaking. In the new software, I was able to work on a figure that had the same body measurements as Amy. It saved me a ton of time and simplified the whole process significantly,” she continued.
Explaining the process adopted for 3D printing garments for her earlier collection, Peleg said, “For my collection last year, I started the process with AccuMark to make the patterns and then moved the patterns to Blender for 3D modeling. From there, I extracted the print files to send to the 3D printer, which is the non-traditional apparel manufacturing method I utilize for my unique clothing.” (KD)
