Fashion and technology. At a first glance they seem opposites of each other. When you look at the creations made by Anouk you can see they go hand-in-hand. Anouk makes extraordinary fashion that responds to the wearer and the environment. The Dremel Multi-Tool is her favorite tool to work with the 3D-print.
THE SPIDER DRESS
The Spider Dress is a digital dress with technology by INTEL that attacks when you come to close to the wearer’s personal space. Pretty (&) scary! Anouk’s dresses are a combination of fabrics, electronics, software, microcontrollers and 3D-prints. She mixes and matches all sorts of techniques and tools, including Dremels tools.
Anouk has made several intelligent fashion projects next to the Spider Dress. For instance the Smoke Dress which shrouds the wearer in a cloud of smoke when she is feeling shy. Or the Cocktail Dress that makes a mean gin & tonic, and the wearable ‘Agent Unicorn’ that helps children with ADD to focus.
In the following video’s Anouk shows several stages of a project. She shows how to work on electronics with VersaTip. But, safety first, Anouk style!
TIPS & TRICKS: PRE-DRILLING
Why is it important to pre-drill? 3D-printed materials from a 3D40 can be fragile. Therefore Anouk pre-drills a smaller hole to avoid cracking the plastics. Afterwards she uses the right size to finish the drilling neatly.
After you have 3D-printed your design it is often not ready for in its final use. We’ll show you step-by-step how to finish 3D-prints with a Dremel Multi-Tool by sanding off imperfections.
