Here you see a selection of material close-ups designed and developed by Maartje Dijkstra. It shows details of her hand executed textures created out of lines and shimmering structures and surfaces. They are all manual 3D printed meaning she uses a 3D printer pen as progressive tool to create unique looking, hand drawn textures/fabrics. By printing manually the focus is on the individualistic style and unique details of the work, not on a programmed machine taking over craftsmanship (mainly used for reproduction purposes). This also means that the production of 1 design can take up to a 800-1000 ours to create. The 3D print filaments that she uses are flexible, depending on the amount of layers, and made out of recycled components. All these structures are used for current and/or future Couture and jewelry designs. LINK DESIGN APPLICATIONS>>> INTERACTIVE COUTURE
