Low Poly Dress Form
by IWorkInPixels, published
And so, here is a life-size dress form, exploded into individual quads, which can be printed (standing up) on a Replicator1 build plate.
Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.

I haven't made one yet (as it is about 2 weeks of continuous printing for one bot) but no, it isn't wearable, it's just a dress form. There have been wearable dresses made, the coolest one I've seen so far being the one that Dita von Teese wore recently at an event here in New York:
It's totally possible, but probably prohibitively time consuming to do a fully articulated dress on the MakerBot... I kinda posted this as a challenge, so we could get some people with that much free time working on these kinds of projects. :)
Was this dress wearable? Do you know anyone who has made a wearable dress? Think it is possible to construct on the makerbot?

Give a Shout Out
1: Print all 608 STLs. This can be accomplished by loading them into ReplicatorG one at a time and pressing "Lay flat" so that their bottom edges are touching the build plate. Once you've done that for all 608 files, you can plate them however you see fit using MakerWare, Blender, OpenSCAD, or whatever you prefer to use.
2: Glue them together. The names of the files are however Blender named them, so you'll have no help in knowing what order to put them together in. If anybody with better Blender-fu could make a derivative, I'd be much obliged.
3: Figure out some sort of stand to put them on.
4: Have an epic dress form, that's just for decoration.
