An Analysis of 3D Printed Textile Structures

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


3D printing in Fashion is quite a significant innovation which came to realization as part of the zeitgeist of the 2000’s. This is a time where technological progress has moved fastest in the last 20 years than it has in the last 100. This exponential growth means that the world in which we live in is changing at a rapid rate and both design and materials will need to alter along with it. Focusing on the areas of technology, design and manufacturing this research aims to look at new textile structures with extensive research undertaken of existing 3D printed textiles and fashion. The main aim is the categorization of all existing 3D printed textile structures in fashion, in order to recognize their properties and benefits.
