Francis Bitonti Studio offers 3d printable models in Cloud
Francis Bitonti Studio, situated in Brooklyn, NY, has started customizable Cloud Collection trying to create the first ever “factory in the cloud”. The studio is well-known for inventing the world’s first completely 3D printed dress especially for Dita von Teese. This time they’re going to work together with MakerBot and 3D printer network 3D Hubs. Their data files of the collection will be directly transferred to 3D printables all over the world and locally through their website. In April 2014 they will start transmitting home goods, by Fall 2014 they’re going to transmit accessories.
All the items are customizable, buyers are free to alter the appearance of the items using he sliding scale. It is up to them to decide how much noise there will be on the surface of the bowl. Files are available on the website at $1. Yo can buy them just as you buy data share platforms like iTunes. Then you can either 3D print the files at home or take them to any of the 75 production hubs all over the world. After 3D printing, the items can be taken right from the hub producer or it can be shipped. All items are made to be printed on a MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer. They aim at embedding digital properties to real physical things. They create products that can easily be hacked, shared and downloaded. So the company supplies its customers with customizable products produced locally on request. There’s no extra waste, which could result in low-quality print. A good addition to the Cloud Collection is the adjustable 3D printed Bristle Dress, designed by Francis Bitonti Studio and his New Skins Workshop, which will also be displayed at the MakerBot Retail Store during the whole April.
