Wearable objects and state-of-the-art technology no longer belongs to science fiction, it can be accomplished by 3D printing. The evolution of digital and 3d printing has transformed many aspects of our lives pleasure, industry use and academic. This project is planning to conduct a serious of DIY and create wearable items as pleasure. The final goal is to achieve useful application.

From our 3D printing experiments in practice, we can distill several core concerns behind student’s engagement with DIY and craft. In the practices of playfulness and material engagement, we can find an underlying concern with pleasure. With the increased participation of small businesses in Maker events, and the many examples of DIY in development, we foreground utility.

We should design to take advantage of the means of production that best suit our design goals and realize that different parts of even the same project or artifact may be best produced in very different ways.
