Kinematics Dress by Nervous System - 3D Printed by Shapeways
Published on Dec 9, 2014
Nervous System has created the first dress with Kinematics, their unique 4D printing system that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules. The Museum of Modern Art has acquired the dress along with the software that created it for their permanent collection. Composed of thousands of interlocking components, the dress was 3D printed as a single folded piece at the Shapeways factory in New York City and required no assembly. This was made possible by Nervous Systems' Kinematics system which combines design generation, customization, and simulation to enable the production of large flexible structures by 3D printing.
