Various types of mannequins have been a part of the fashion industry since the 15th century but Hans Boodt's printed Mannequins are a long way from the 'old school' tiny, wooden dolls or wire meshes. These 3D-printed human/art creations are establishing themselves as a premier manufacturer of 21st century clothing displays.
Not only are these forms biodegradable, but they can be printed for 1/10th the cost of traditionally made mannequins. The entire process to create a custom display takes approximately a week. That includes creating a clay prototype and two days to print the production quality mannequin.
Because of the speed-to-manufacture and seemingly infinite variety of mannequins, major fashion brands are already opting for these fashionable explorations in form and function.
