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.

That's an impressive slideshow, Lauren. A jet engine, a hybrid car, dresses. Wow. My favorites were the speaker with lights and the hybrid car. Of course, the printed chocolate seemed like a great idea, too.

I did sigh when I saw 3D printers highlighted here again.  But, myslideshow addiction got hte best of me.  The cell phone case is the coolest thing I've seen so far.

It would be fantastic to have an editorial about 3D printing beyond the fad and "wow" factor here.

3D Printers

Nowadays 3D Printers are getting very common everyone knows them and those who dont know are trying to get informations about it .Starting with the technology of this printer a material printer can easily be converted into 3D Printer with digital technology.To make a print out what we have to do is just create a design on your computer by CAD software and then connect the computer with th printer it will produce  the output by continous submitting a particular material layer by layer and then heating it .No matter these printers are becomming popular but then also they are of commercial usage other than consumer .Because first  of all they are expenive secondly there are certain drawbacks as well out of which noise is the most harmfull one it is soo noisy that it wont be reasonable  to place it in the residential area .They have certain limitations as well the most important one is this that it works on a single material that is the output product is made of single material unlike our consumer products that are the combinations of several products .But because  this is a  new technology there is a space of improving it as well. Below mentioned are certaine 3D printed material that i have come across however there are many other as well.

1.Janjapp Ruijssenaars has announced his plan for a 3D House

2.3D Technology was used in the movie SKYFALL for creating the replica of Aston Martin

3.Human Tissues


5.Lightening and their creating the interiors of many luxury hotels

6.Household equipments

And many more
