3D Printed Clothing By Freedom of Creation

3D Printed Clothing By Freedom of Creation

Rapid-prototyping has several benefits over traditional methods to produce textiles.

Naresh Kumar

3D printing is slowly becoming popular among textile designers as it leaves no waste, requires less labor and creates fabrics much faster than conventional methods. Design company Freedom of Creation was perhaps the first to dabble with this rapid-prototyping technique to produce textiles that use software to convert 3D body data into fabric structures and does away with the need to cut and sew textiles into final products.

The Museum of Modern Art, in New York is currently displaying 3D textiles from Freedom of Creation.

Here’s a short video that visualizes the process of 3D printing:
