Hey peeps, just a quick bit of news that I thought i’d pass on to our readers as I’m assuming by now a bunch of you are at least somewhat interested in where 3D printing meets fashion…

… the most interesting bit (to me) is the mention of “MakerBot Flexible Filament, a polyester-based material that’s coming soon” …. flexible filament + chainmail sort of 3d models = knitted / fabric wearable shoe uppers. Combined with solid heels and platforms it seems like I will be able to print out some wearable shoes before the end of the year! exciting! particularly now that I have the printer in our living room here in Sydney and I have plenty of evenings free to use it. More blog posts coming soon!!
