Finally it is here: Stagewear designer Michael Schmidt and model Dita Von Teese debuted this 3D printed gown on Monday at the Ace Hotel. This fully articulated gown is 3D modeled by architect Francis Bitonti and then 3D printed in Nylon by Shapeways.

The gown was assembled from 17 pieces, dyed black, lacquered and adorned with over 13,000 Swarovski crystals to create a sensual flowing form. Thousands of unique components were 3D printed in a flowing mesh designed exactly to fit Ditta's body.

Only with 3D printing, garments with complex design can be designed and fabricated to fit to a special person. And of course, it looks very sexy and cool!
