3D Printing Preserves Ancient Bashkir Clothing and Culture #WearableWednesday  
http://adafru.it/eH8

Think how much of our world’s history is lost or forgotten because there was no way to record it. People most often think of protecting language and traditions, yet clothing is a strong part of identity. That’s why I love this project which uses 3D printing to replicate and preserve the original fashions of the Bashkir. First, let’s just establish who we are talking about.

A Turkic people, indigenous to Bashkortostan, which extends on both sides of the Ural Mountains “where Europe meets Asia,” the Bashkirs speak their own language, and it’s said they are mostly Sunni Muslims of the Hanafi madhhab.

According to 3DPrint.com, a group of designers decided to create these fashions for the 3D Print Expo Show in Moscow. As you can tell from the photo, the 3D version of the breast plate, or dulbega as it is called, seems to be more of an ivory color, while the real deal appears metallic. That’s because the original dulbega was fashioned out of coins and jewelry. I like that they've allowed the comparison, because you can really see the detail involved in creating these fashions. Notice that earrings, as well as the trim on the headpiece and sleeves has also been done. Once painted, I’m sure this work could really pass for an outfit of the time.

Third low cost SLS project, this time form Sharebot:

Looks like they might not be using a heated chamber if they're rafting to blue tape.  
ShareBot exclusively revealed to 3DPI that they have completed its research and development phase for Project Snowhite the development of an SLS 3D printer.

Fab Academy Iluminando al Mundo (Fab Academy Illuminating the World), my proudest, most meta moment to date. http://bit.ly/1pWWSVj Sometimes things get weird – and in a transformative moment somehow become unbelievably meaningful. The Peruvians of Fab Lab Lima, especially the irrepressible Walter Gonzales, who carries the Peruvian flag with him at all times at Fab events, orchestrated this photo with the Fab Lab torch yesterday following the 2014 Fab Academy graduation at Fab10 in Barcelona, Spain.   #Fab10
