The RAPID 2012 Conference and Exposition started off with a bang with the 3D FABulous Fashion Show, sponsored by Materialise. The runway extravaganza, held in the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, took place during the opening reception of what is considered by many to be the most important conference in the Additive Manufacturing industry.

The 3D FABulous Fashion Show included over forty 3D printed pieces created by famous designers such as Brussels’ master milliner Elvis Pompilio, necklaces by Daniel Widrig and a collection of stunning pieces by Niccolò Casas that redefine how accessories can be worn.  In addition, the 20 top designs from Materialise’s ‘Hats Off to 3D Printing Challenge’ and the RAPID design contest were shown. It truly put the HOT back in Hotlanta!
