What do you think of when I say the word 3D?
Your favourite Hollywood franchise film?
An illusion created by some technology that is 3 dimensional?
What do you think of when you read 3D print?
A 2 dimensional image that looks different from a different viewing angle?
What comes to your mind when I say fashion?
You think of clothes?
Your favourite high street brand?
Okay, okay, I know I’m asking too many questions and not giving you answers.
I’ve recently been acquainted with 3D printing. Now, I’ve known about this technology for some time because I’m a fashionable tech geek. But I’ve only been able to see it, experience it and feel it about 2 months ago. And I’m amazed every single time, including now.
Thanks to my long-standing love affair with fashion (watching old seasons of Project Runway included), my inherent interest in technology (I have my dad to thank) and this blog, I was invited to 3Dwalla‘s workshop in Lower Parel, Mumbai.
3Dwalla is a relatively young company that provides its customers with prints beyond paper. They can take your idea from imagination to reality or give 3D life to a design you have. So, when fashion design student Devanshi Shah approached Monik Shah of 3Dwalla with an idea for an innovative final year project, they collaborated to produce something special.
