FRANCIS BITONTI: 3D PRINTED FABRICS

About this Workshop
3D printing is revolutionizing the textile and fashion industries. Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), an additive manufacturing technique that uses a high power to fuse small particles of material into a desired shape, can print integrated connections between design elements resulting in parts that drape and flow like fabric. Using the world’s most versatile modeler, Rhino3D, this hands-on lab will cover the fundamentals for creating, manipulating, and transforming geometry as well as the process for preparing a textile model for 3D Printing.

Audience
Interior designers, architects, designers, manufacturers, and anyone who is interested in exploring the revolutionary world of bespoke 3D printed textiles

Takeaways:
What are 3D Printed Textiles?
How can I model interlocking elements?
Using Rhino3D to create and prepare a digital model for 3D Printing.
