Designers and engineers have now been using 3D printers for over a decade to create prototypes, small parts and also just purely experimental pieces. Since 2010, the cost of 3D printers has decreased dramatically to a fraction of the price, now making it possible to buy yourself a desktop 3D printer for your home or studio. Meanwhile the possibilities of this technology are increasing rapidly and we are seeing everything from large-scale industrial machines such as cars, aircraft parts and even houses to micro-scale organic products such as human skin grafts and bone prosthetics being printed. This exciting new technology is rapidly developing in many diverse industries and, with our love of wearable technology growing just as rapidly, fashion designers are creating some incredible wearable designs. In this report, we look at the best use of 3D printing technology in fashion design…so far.
Fashion designers are always searching for new materials and textiles with which to create and express their concepts, and now scientists and engineers have created a whole new toolbox they can work with. With the possibilities of creating the perfect fit by scanning the body and then printing the fabric directly, the designer can create unique pieces of bespoke Haute Couture in a fraction of the time and cost it traditionally would. What once was a long and expensive process can now be attained at the push of a button.
