Workshop: 3D Printing for Fashion
Learn the basics and possibilities of digital fabrication from NYC design experts! As part of Eyebeam's Computational Fashion program, this workshop will demonstrate some of today's most disruptive, innovative, and thought provoking technologies. Join Arthur Young-Spivey, Sabine Seymour, and Francis Bitonti to explore 3D software, scanning, and printing tools, and consider how they can be used, combined, and pushed in new directions.

Workshop participants will gain exposure to digital fabrication and its potential use within fashion, developing new ways to think about it as both a prototyping process and a creative medium. Presentations  including designer Francis Bitonti discussing his work on a fully articulated 3D printed gown  will be followed by hands-on demonstrations, where participants will be able to try out various aspects of the digital fabrication process using a selection of 3D printers, scanners, and software.

Participants are encouraged (but not required) to bring their own laptops installed with 3D modeling software in order to get insight and feedback from workshop experts. Recommended free or open source software includes: 3dtin.com, Tinkercad.com, SketchUp, OpenSCAD, Wings3D, Scupltris, Autodesk 123D, and Blender.
