How do shoes printed on a 3D printer look?

Nelli Zavetov April 14, 2015

An amazing future, of which we could only dream, comes. And all thanks to a 3D printer. With the help of this revolutionary device, today they are trying to create not only parts for a car or a weapon, but also - which cannot but please us girls! - shoes. So, for the opening of Milan Design Week, the United Nude brand ordered designers Michael Young and Ross Lovegrove, as well as famous architects Zahe Hadid, Ben van Berkel and Fernando Romero to have a collection of five pairs of shoes printed on a 3D laser-sintering technology (SLS) . All models are made of polyamide (which gives durability to the product) and thermoplastic polyurethane, and it took about 24 hours to create them.

How do you like the experiment? Just imagine that, perhaps, soon we will pay for purchases at your favorite online stores and immediately press the "Print" button. 3D printers are already being released at a reasonable price, it remains only to wait for an increase in printing speed (at least up to a couple of hours, and what was the same time when we downloaded movies for days ?!), and also adapt materials more familiar to us for printing.
