Fashion designer Melinda Looi’s new ‘Gems of the Ocean’ collection includes one of the world’s first full-length gowns to be 3D-printed as a single part. It also comes with unique 3D-printed accessories straight out of a mermaid’s world. So what does it take to make a collection like this one? A highly skilled team of 3D modeling wizards celebrating all the design freedom offered by 3D Printing! Here’s how they did it – and here’s why even a 12-core CPU with 64GB RAM can seem like it’s not enough computing power sometimes.
Earlier this year, we took you behind the scenes to experience the innovation and design behind multi-award winning fashion designer Melinda Looi and Griffith University’s Samuel Canning's fully 3D-printed collection entitled “GEMS OF THE OCEAN” . This breathtaking collection not only captivated those in attendance for its debut at Meckler Media’s 3D Print Week New York, but has since been featured on both NBC’s TODAY Show and FOX News’ FOX & Friends.
