United Nude Launches 3D Printing in SoHo

8/5/2014
3D Systems is collaborating with fashion brand United Nude to deliver a new line of 3D-printed wearable shoes. The "Float" shoes are designed for immediate home printing on the new Cube(R) 3 desktop 3D printer from Cubify, pushing the boundaries of what's possible using 3DS's most affordable home printer. The Float shoes will debut at United Nude's flagship retail installation in Manhattan's Soho neighborhood.

United Nude plans to offer live, in-store manufacturing and feature continuous shoe printing in the store window. This is the first fashion-focused 3D printing retail experience in the United States, expanding on United Nude's successful Regent Street, London, installation.

"After pioneering wearable, 3D-printed shoes using a state-of-the-art Selective Laser Sintering 3D printer, we are thrilled to deliver fully functional, 3D-printed shoes designed for an affordable home desktop printer," said Rem D Koolhaas, founder of United Nude. "This design is about creating something beautiful and interesting; it's about experimenting, moving forward and learning along the way."

Priced at $999, Cube 3 is the only dual material, plug-and-play, kid-safe certified 3D printer that is easy to own and affordable to operate. From fashion to decor to everyday items, with the Cube 3 you can print what you desire and what you need. Cube 3 comes with two starter cartridges and 25 exclusive designs to get printing quickly and love what you make.

The Float Shoe is available online and in the NYC store at 25 Bond Street.
