The creative collaboration between Iris Van Herpen and Daniel Widrig resulted in 3D models of intense beauty and intricacy. However, when converting complex designs such as these into a format that can be printed (.stl), errors can appear throughout the design. With Materialise’s Magics software, these errors were swiftly detected and repaired, playing an integral role in the success of the printing process. Practical advice was also available for other aspects integral to the 3D printing process like dimensions and part thickness.
In the world of fashion, small issues often appear during the final fitting of a garment. With such intricate 3D printed pieces this could have posed a problem, but with engineering services available to lend a helping hand, solutions were quickly devised, created, and delivered. Using 3D scanning technology and their 3D modeling expertise, the engineering services team made the last minute changes necessary to ensure that when it was time for the models to hit the catwalk, the designs were a perfect fit and ready to impress.
