3D printing may end the agonizing search for the perfect wedding dress. Advances in technology coupling 3D printing with acoustic waves, facial mapping, and fashion design have opened a new market.
You can enlist 3D printing companies for uniquely personalized wedding dresses now, and even rings based on voice waves or faces.
Sri Lankan fashion designer Charlene Thuring wanted to explore 3D printing possibilities. She worked with 3D Concept Studio, the country’s first 3D printing house. Once the team found the right bride, they got started. Thuring created the print file and 3D Concept Studio produced the gown. The end result was not only aesthetically pleasing but also had extra functionality — the voluminous skirt could be replaced quickly with a trimmer version more comfortable and suitable for the reception.
The Japanese-based 3DWave encoder ring is shaped to represent your own acoustic pattern. You start by uploading a three second clip. The company then translates the audio data into gold, silver, or rose-colored rings.
