Can 3D Printers Replace Your Wardrobe?

Print comment Post Comments
Ecouterre's Jasmin Malik Chua reported a rise in designers dabbling in 3D printers and seamlessly woven patterns. Using ultraviolet beams to fuse recyclable thermoplastic from powder into intricate designs, designers are able to create textiles and perfectly tailored clothing with little labor and no waste. Along with less travel time, fabrication time is decreased to hours rather than weeks or months.

According to Chua, 3D printed textiles was the brainchild of designer Jiri Evenhuis and Janne Kyttanen of Freedom of Creation. Evenhuis has said, "Instead of producing textiles by the meter, then cutting and sewing them into final products, this concept has the ability to make needle and thread obsolete." And more designers like Philip Delamore and others at Freedom of Creation are noticing the benefits of printed clothing.
