Francis Bitonti didn’t just envision a future where everyone can print their own clothes, he created it. Together with students from his “New Skins: Computational Design for Fashion” workshop, the architect-turned-designer devised a couture dress that’s free to download on Thingiverse.com, complete with detailed instructions on how to adapt it to your specific tastes. The “Bristle” prototype, which Bitonti and company constructed using two MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printers, will be on display at the Makerbot’s retail store in New York City in April.
