ROCK HILL, S.C. — 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today a collaboration with fashion brand United Nude to deliver a new line of 3D-printed wearable shoes. The "Float" shoes are uniquely designed for immediate home printing on the new CubeŽ 3 desktop 3D printer, pushing the boundaries of what's possible using 3DS's most affordable home printer. The Float shoes will debut at United Nude's flagship retail installation in Soho, Manhattan. United Nude plans to offer live, in-store manufacturing and feature continuous shoe printing in the store window. This is the first fashion-focused 3D printing retail experience in the United States, expanding on United Nude's successful Regent Street, London installation.

"After pioneering wearable, 3D-printed shoes using a state-of-the-art Selective Laser Sintering 3D printer, we are thrilled to deliver fully functional, 3D-printed shoes designed for an affordable home desktop printer," said Rem D Koolhaas, Founder of United Nude. "This design is about creating something beautiful and interesting; it's about experimenting, moving forward and learning along the way."

Priced at $999, Cube 3 is the only dual material, plug-and-play, kid-safe certified 3D printer that is easy to own and affordable to operate. From fashion to decor to everyday items, with the Cube 3 you can print what you desire and what you need. Cube 3 comes with two starter cartridges and 25 exclusive designs to get printing quickly and love what you make.

The Float Shoe is available at www.unitednude.com and in the NYC store at 25 Bond Street.

ABOUT UNITED NUDE
A story that started with a broken heart, Architect Rem D Koolhaas (not to be confused with his uncle, the world famous architect) tried to get back his girl by downsizing architecture to its most venerable scale; that of a woman's foot.

In 2003, together with seventh generation shoemaker Galahad Clark, United Nude was launched. Turning dreams into reality, their first shoe 'the Mobius' was developed with the guidance of the great Sergio Rossi and technical shoemaker Maurizio Martignago in Italy. Ever since, United Nude has become the iconic brand at the intersection of fashion and design, creating products that are about clear concepts, elegance and innovation. While available in over 50 countries worldwide, United Nude has its own stores in Amsterdam, London, New York, Vienna, Tel Aviv, Seoul and Tokyo.
