For anyone who follows Anouk Wipprecht or is just hearing about her infamous, interactive 3D printed dresses - This is a chance to add YOUR design sensibility to one of her couture-creations... Anouk x Polaire will be assembling 3D printed "Particles" made by people all over the world - into a complete "Open Source Dress". There is still time to send your particle.
On the left: some of the smaller prototype dress. On the right: a particle sent in by a contributor.
Anouk added LED rings to some of her own particles, using them as examples.

To participate is quite simple if you or a friend have a 3D printer. The easiest way is to simply 3D print this existing part in Tinkercad or if you're the creative type : change that 3D model in Tinkercad so it has your own personal style - then send the print to:

We took a little time out of our day and designed / 3D printed a couple particles. Have a look:
Below left is our version of their base model, it will easily print on a Makerbot or similar 3D printer (click to Tinker-it). Below middle is the "spikey" particle you see above, and below right is the "balloon" particle" you see above in white.
If you don't have a 3D printer you're not out of luck. There are several professional companies eager to perfectly-print your models and we've got them lined up on our 3D-Print page.
Hope to see your particles on the Open Source Dress!
