Finally, here comes the time that sewing machines and fabrics are not necessary in making dresses anymore. Danit Peleg, Fashion Design student at Shenkar, finished her entire graduation project from home scale 3D printers. Initially, Peleg barely knew about 3D printing technology and didn’t know how the final result would be. Teamed up the 3D specialists techfactoryplus and XLN, she got the first step experiencing the different printers and materials. After went through material experiments for a month, she found the suitable material, the “FilaFlex” which is strong, yet very flexible and finally her printer can start the job printing the first piece of this collection, the red jacket.
For scaling process, the enthusiasm designer set up her own printing farm at home and managed to finish over 2,000 hours printing job for her graduation collection (according to her, every A4-sized sheet of textile took at least 20 hours to print).
“I wanted the models to wear 100% 3d-printed materials – including the shoes for the models” Peleg said.
As a result, she completed five edgy looks, entirely from 3D printing technology. Now she is still going on fashion and 3D printing journey, researching and experimenting the new techniques for the industries.
