Dutch Artist Creates 3D Printed Shoes


Metamorphosis is the name of a project developed by Pauline Van Dongen, student from ArtEZ Institute of Arts in Arnhem, The Netherlands, who came up with the idea of creating a line of 3D printed high heels.

Created for her master's thesis, the shoes were recently presented in a show entitled "The Future of Fashion" that opened in Amsterdam and curated by a Dutch company called Freedom of Creation. The latter is a firm that specializes in 3D printed design.

Just like most of the objects created using a 3D printer, the shoes are made of powdered nylon which has been combined using a computer controlled laser, informs Fast Company.

Currently a pair of 3D printed shoes costs around a few thousands of dollars. However, the price continues to drop significantly.
