About the Author

Francis Bitonti is a designer who specialises in cutting-edge digital design and manufacturing technologies. He is a co-founder of Lexset and founded and continues to run the Francis Bitonti Studio. His studio projects have been featured in Wired, The New York Times, Fast Company, and The Wall Street Journal. His pieces have been collected and featured in the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National design Museum, the Museum of Arts and Design, the Boston Museum of Fine Art, the High Museum, and the Mint Museum.


I highly recommend this book to any designers wanting to delve deeper into the world of 3D printing. It is full of great ideas and case studies, and successfully introduces additive manufacturing from the ground up, sharing the author's insight, passion and involvement in emerging trends. * Anatol Just, Digital Manufacturing Technical Demonstrator, London Metropolitan University, UK *
Francis Bitonti's luminous book calls attention to the extraordinary opportunities afforded in this dazzling era of disruptive technology, painting a breathtaking portrait of a bold new world. * Evan Douglis, Dean, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA *
A consistent investigation of the emerging fields at the crossroads of fashion, technology and architecture... literature is currently lacking a serious and structured book that engages with production technologies and computational design with a precise emphasis on 3D printed fashion. It is a unique instrument for the understanding of the third industrial revolution. I would strongly recommend this book to my students. *proposal review * Niccolo Casas, R.I.S.D. Rhode Island School of Design, USA / Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, UK *
Its greatest strength is that it's written from the perspective of a fashion insider with the technical chops to create beyond the fashion world. His insight is incomparable and there is no better source than Francis Bitonti to cite this kind of work. I can't think of any other book that specifically focuses on 3D printing for fashion. This book is necessary for the future of the field, and is also very forward-thinking. Its approach to 3D printing as a challenge to modern-day industrial conventions is also interesting and provides a theoretical background to the functional topics. *proposal review * Antonius Wiriadjaja, Research Fellow and Adjunct Professor at New York University, USA *
Fills a void in terms of educational texts: there is no direct competitor that I know of on this admittedly focused topic. This is one of the first texts to address emerging design and fabrication techniques in the fashion industry. By coupling both topics, the book merges these formerly discrete activities into a cohesive single process. *proposal review * Fleet Hower, Lecturer, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, New York, USA *
