NTU School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering hosted Singapore’s First 3D Printing Festival held at the Research Techno Plaza last December. Here’s an overview of the event:
Winners for the fashion and abacus-themed were presented with a prize money of $10,000 while the models strut down the runway in the 3D printed winning designs during the event. Watch the video below for an overview of the Fashion Show.
Creatz3D was proud to be able to take part in NTU’s First 3D Printing Festival as a Gold Sponsor as well as the opportunity to print out 2 of the winning pieces for the Fashion Show. The design on the left is named ‘Memory’ by Ko Hyunwoong (team). Printed using Stratasys PolyJet Technology (RGD 720), this 3D printed conceptual dress is inspired by the characteristics of water to retain ‘memory’ of objects/substances it interacted with. The translation of the existence of such memory into visible qualities is reflected in the design elements of the dress.
The design on the right was inspired by the word ‘water’ in Chinese calligraphy. Tan Yu Jun (team) hopes to achieve the movement of water falling from the sky as he feels that water is an essential part of life. Without it, the earth would be dull and colourless. This design piece is 3D printed using Stratasys’s patented PolyJet and FDM Technology (ABS & RGD 720).
