I’ve been watching 3-D printers proliferate over the past year, as well as a plethora of ideas about how to use them, from an edible model of the space shuttle printed from cheese to custom-designed plastic Pez dispenser heads to intricate jewelry.

Clothing designer Iris van Herpen has also put her hand in, with 3-D printed clothing.
