Yes, Ann, good point. It will probably take awhile before materials advance to the point where they would be comfortable. Still, it's a nice idea to think about...and I imagine someday the technology will catch up!

I was sharing this story with someone earlier today, and he was telling about how they created an ear with a 3D printer that was sugically attached to a person.

I preume that when the Urbee goes into production, it won't use 3D printing. I wonder how big of a production run they're planning.

It's true Charles that Haute Couture is never comfortable.  Like everything on the runway, it's not for the real world.  3D printed jewelry is pleasant though.  That's been available at the MOMA store for years.

Comfort clothing

Regarding the comfort of the 3D-printed clothing: I draw the line on comfort when clothes are able to stand up by themselves. That material does not look comfortable.

The rise of 3D printing, for low quantity items, makes all kinds of sense to me. But I wonder for a smartphone case if they will really be able to compete on price with manufacturers who are obviously offering a smaller selection of product but have the advantage of mass quantities.

Lauren I believe that this 3D printing will greatly reduce the cost by reducing sock maintaining, transportation no labor involvement of production

Imagine a shoo shop where they are having only the sample or some IPods where will show all the possible designs and colours. Customer walk in to the shop and do the modification he likes to have and print a shoo jest for him.

WOW lauren, great slide show, this 3D printed cloths will change the entire personalize cloths,

I am thinking of a Robotic tailor which takes my measurements with sensors and print just for me with exact measurement with no wastage at all,  while I'm having a coffee.

As someone who's taller than average and picky about clothes, I'd love to be able to 3D print my own. But that won't happen unless the materials emulate the look and feel of wool, cotton, rayon and silk, so I'm not holding my breath.

What a great slideshow roundup of all of the sometimes wacky and wonderful things being 3D printed these days. Personally, I really like the idea of 3D printed clothes...and that dress Dita is wearing is quite stunning, actually. I love clothes but shopping can be a chore. Imagine just downloading files and printing your clothes at home someday. (At least, this is how I would like this technology to evolve!) Brilliant.
