3D printed bridal wear printed in nylon.
The exhibit that seems to have got everyone talking at TCT Asia is a collection from Shanghai based 3D printing design company, Xuberance who have taken over the showfloor of the inaugural event with one of the world's first 3D printed wedding designs.
3D printed floral designs included a unique printed bouquet.
The white and gold themed collection has everything from an intricate 3D printed corset style bridal dress to floral cake toppers and decorative light shades.
Every piece from the cake topper to the venue dressing was 3D printed including these gold roses.
Unlike most 3D printed fashion we may be used to seeing, the custom dress is not simply a conceptual art piece but was in fact worn by bride Leirah Wang and designed by Steven Ma - husband and wife and also two leading Principals of the design studio itself.
Every 3D printed dress needs a 3D printed head piece to go with it.
Created with 3D scan data of the bride, the dress was designed and 3D printed in nylon and took three to four weeks to produce at a cost of around $3,000. Teamed with a 3D printed veil and bouquet, the results demonstrate the possibilities 3D printing holds for mass customisation and freedom of design.
More 3D printed designs mixed with real floral pieces.
3D printed jewellery and wall decor which can too be order if you would rather just a hint of 3D on your big day.
Founded in 2008, Xuberance specialises in art, product design, architecture and interior design on a global scale and also runs a series of 3D printing training workshops which introduce designers to 3D technology through fashion, jewellery, engineering, art and architecture with the XUBERANCE X-1 Series large build 3D printer.
3D printed lamps can be made to order from the Xuberance online store.
Xuberance co-founder and bride, Leirah Wang, commented: "Many students and also professional designers want to know more about 3D design because it can release creativity for young generations of designers. A lot of forms and shapes can be realised with 3D printing technology. Previously it was hard to create this kind of form but right now its possible."
