3D hat is ready to wear on Melbourne Cup Day 2013

Rebecca Judd wore a 3D Printed fascinator to this year's Melbourne Cup, and it was proudly 3D printed by RedEye Australasia at their build centre in Melbourne. Designed by Danica Erard (@demillinery) and drawn as a 3D CAD file by Jeese Leeworthy, the fascinator took on 12 hours to build!

Manufactured using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), the fascinator is made is nylon, so it is very strong yet flexible, allowing motion and movement in the headpiece.

Painted to suit Rebecca's Tony Maticevski dress, Australia is finally beginning to embrace the many wonderful uses of 3D printing technologies, and the experts who print a wide array of fabulous items everyday!
