Printing is no longer relegated to the 2D world with the invention of the MarkerBot, a desktop 3D printer. Created by Zach Hoeken and Bre Pettis of MakerBot Industries the open source gadgetry has developed a personal 3D prototyping culture.
Check out MakerBot’s companion site Thingiverse where 3D “thingidesigners” share and upload files to be printed by their desktop factory.
In fashion, manufacturing from digital files have become the norm printing textiles, weaving, embroidery, or detailed laser designs. Now, prototyping in 3D with the MakerBot would add literally another dimension.
