If these 3d printed clothes become popular then what I feel is branded clothes industry will go down. Because people usually take these clothes because of their customization but 3d printed clothes will be more customized.

Robbie I agree with you as you said it is very early to talk about 3d printed clothes but we all can see where thye technology is moving and with what pace it is moving it is no time we will be using this technology in our households even. It might take time but it will beused even with some modifications .

When 3d printing will become popular in clothing it will be very usefull in making customized clothes that can easily fit to individuals not only this but it will help individuals to generate the clothes for emergency gathyerings or parties avoiding the hassel of going to the tailor and then collecting the clothes from them

Obviously 3D printed dresses are possible, but what about 3D pants? From the way the dresses look, they won't be a real possibility anytime soon. You can get amazing pants on http://www.khwanpants.com/pants, so they won't be missed either.

That's really impressive. 3D printing has managed to leave a footprint in this industry too. Fashion is definitely one of those fields that could use some new technology breakthroughs. The jewelry industry is also marked by 3D printing. Take a look at these beautiful rose gold engagement rings, they are just perfect pieces, aren't they?

3D printing for clothes

I have to admit, the idea of using 3D printing to create clothes is amazing, but I think it's too soon for this type of clothes to become mainstream, they look too unconfartable. If you want to gain attention by shocking people with futuristic clothes, then they are right for you, but if you just want to feel and look cool you should visit website, you might find exactly what you're looking for.

In the future, Cabe, you can take consolation from the fact that you'll be able to make your clothes on a 3D printer. .
