3D Printing: the Future of Fashion?

Presented by some as the next industrial revolution, 3D printing r is currently in a phase of d democratization. Capable of reproducing objects of our daily lives than the EPS as well these aircraft, food or even human organs, these printers to a new genus invest all sectors. What will be the impact on the world of fashion?

Consisting of overlay layers of mati res until get a 3 dimensional object, 3D printing has seen its scope considerably evolve over time. Long cantonn e carrying out models for sectors of industry or architecture, it has recently seen its applications multiply. It must be said that 3D printers are now able to use materials such as clay, salt, cement, the drink, chocolate or m me human cells.

Far from being outdone, the apparel sector is also very promising. We think especially of the us under-clothes con base Cosyflex (a scoring tissue and degrade dimmable printed leave of res lastom with cotton filaments), to the imagin sport shoes are by Nike (which after us remarks to custom ize our shoes via NIKEiD site launches now in 3D printing) or still the dress in nylon to Dita Von Teese (first int whole dress out of a 3D printer).

Back in 2007, the company Shapeways is known for having developed the Nylon 12, a white material, resistant and flexible, able to bend without breaking when it is printed in low thickness (both for the time limit e fix 0.7 mm). Its main application is for the moment a bikini enti regularly printed in 3D (of already and already on sale on the e-shop of the brand).

the origin of the dress printed in 3D that Lady Gaga arbora on November 10 on the occasion of the launch of its latest album, the company Materialise was his c at the point TPU – 92 a-1, a mati re elastic ultra light designed especially for the industry of fashion and used e in January last on the Haute Couture of Iris Van Herpen wire d. Artist inspired by nature to give life to the sculptural d based creations the laws of physics, this latest pr senta so two dresses the futuristic licatesse dnot having much envy traditional weaving techniques.

The advantages of 3D printing

No matter the complexity of IP make it: no d price hangs to the amount of mati re used e.
The pi these are produced on demand, there is therefore no unsold (a crucial point for the small cr creators who want to start).
A m machine can create almost all forms possible and no adjustment is necessary between two impressions of pi these different.
No loss of mati re and possibility to use materials recycled s.
Possibility to produce the EPS these complexes, which would be impossible create otherwise (see here and l).
Production can be done locally, in mini 3D printing plants. With the cl a relocation of jobs as well as a discount considerable pollution due to transport.
No t d the customization of pi surco these (colors, shapes, dimensions, etc.).

What the future serves us r

Initially, IP Internet design these 100% custom – like what is happening already at Shapeways – should be d mocratiser. The more creative draw m my their pi these, while others will simply resume the mod finished d pr and to modify the main parameters (size, colors, etc).

Then, like computers, dishwashers and other ovens, 3D printers should be little bit in our homes. Their price will be considered substantially down, while their precision and spectrum of materials used will have increased. Suffice it to buy on the internet the patron of such or such little dress (or create ourselves my via software), to scan your body in 3D (so that the said dress can fit perfectly our morphology), and then start printing for a few minutes this d e sir IP.

In the mortgage is o this scenario is r gain, the world of fashion would be obviously totally upset: end of textile factories low costs salary, e-shops and the shops “hardcoded” and explosion of the tier mod list m, which would become more than never strategic. By 2030, brands such as Zara or H & M could eventually abandon production and focus solely on the development of bosses, they would then sell on the internet. follow…
