Stratasys 3D Printing Helps Japanese Fashion Designer Flex His Muscles At Yuima Nakazato 2014 Collection In Tokyo

MINNEAPOLIS and REHOVOT, Israel, July 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Award-winning Japanese designer Yuima Nakazato, known for creating unique dresses for famed artists and celebrities, creates neo-futuristic sportswear with an Objet500 Connex multi-material 3D Printer for his 2014 collection

Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a leading manufacturer of 3D printers and production systems for prototyping and manufacturing, today announced that its Objet500 Connex multi-material 3D Printer has been used to produce unique numbered neo-futuristic bibs for the " Yuima Nakazato 2014 Collection" which premiered on July 25 in Minami-Aoyama Tokyo, Japan.

The concept of the collection is based on Nakazato's vision of a neo-futuristic sport: "young street punks, riding on motorcycles, playing a basketball-like sports game in an underground dune stadium." For this imaginary game, Nakazato designed an original uniform and used the Stratasys multi-material 3D Printer to design bibs that combine numbers and images of human muscles, reflecting his artistic obsession with the idea of "clothing as extension of the body."    

Sun Junjie, another young designer who collaborated on this project, worked to shape Nakazato's imaginative vision, using 3D CAD software and the Stratasys multi-material 3D Printer. Starting with the modelling of a muscle fiber for the bibs, he used rubber-like and transparent materials simultaneously 3D printed to enable the clear, soft and flexible parts. These were then colored to achieve the desired look and feel.

"Without the Objet500 Connex multi-material 3D printing technology, it would never have been possible to make these complicated geometries in such a short timeframe. I made two or three design iterations with the help of prototypes for each piece before it was completed," says Sun. "The Objet500 Connex is perfect for this kind of creative, iterative manufacturing. It provides amazing 16 micron precision, the multi-material capability and a variety of material choices.
