Making one's own clothes easily is the holy-grail of fashion. Your complete vision, personality, creativity all in a fashion statement. I am always happy to see art and technology merge. I look forward to 3D printing a shirt.

I would actually be surprised if we ever see 3D printed clothes used in conjunction with "fashion" in any major way. To me, fashion means high cost. But 3D printing is the modern day counterpart of clothes made on the home sewing machine. When I was growing up, the kids who had home-sewn clothes were always embarrassed because they weren't very fashionable.

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

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.

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?

Obviously 3D dresses are possible

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.

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

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 .
