3dtie lace Necktie For Men by Boris Rabinovich

Home > Winners > #50761


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
3dtie lace

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Necktie For Men

INSPIRATION:
I was inspired by additive manufacturing technology to create a 3D printed fashion product. Modular and customizable architecture was inspired by modern software products and my previous work as a software architect. I dreamed of a necktie that could be converted to a bolo tie, or a bow tie, or a bracelet, or a bra, or customized with unique shapes, colors, images, or initials. The 3D printed fabric had to behave like a textile: flexible, strong, durable, quiet, and wrinkle free.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Modular and customizable, printed out of biodegradable plastic, 3DTie is a new category in the necktie fashion. Equally appropriate for a geek or a fashionista, 3DTie is as much a 3D printing technology showcase as it is a fashion statement and a great conversation piece. A two-color 3d printed tie. Flexible fabric-like structure made of regular triangular tiles. Straight down shape, four tiles or 2 1/4" wide. The top color is cut out to produce a lace effect.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The knot and the blade are connected by a stainless steel bar, just like wristwach is connected to its band. This allows to replace the knot or the blade and to create many combinations. Neck-loop is made of flexible PLA and is easy to put on, take of, or adjust length.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started over 2 years ago in Sudbury MA. It was first presented at the Geek Picnic 2014 in St. Petersburg, Russia.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Fashion, Apparel and Garment Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The tie is 3D printed from PLA using FDM technology. PLA is the renewable, reusable, bio-compatible, biodegradable plastic - poster child of 3D printing. Geometry of the connections between tiles is inspired by non-manifold topology similar to the self-intersection required to present a Klein bottle as a 3 dimensional object.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The body of the tie is 3mm thick, 57mm wide and the tie is 450mm or 500mm long. It can withstand the pull of 20 kg.

TAGS:
tie, necktie, 3D printed tie, 3D printed fabric, digital fabric, skinny tie

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
3dtie underwent thousands of iterations focusing on textile-like behavior of the digital fabric, geometry of the connections between the tiles, ease of use of the neck-loop, and repeatable quality. All ties now undergo automated testing.

CHALLENGE:
The hardest parts were the design of the knot and the geometry of the connections between the tiles.
