Sworoba OyetKep's curator insight, March 16, 2013 7:02 AM

In this article Industrial designer Joshua Harris proposes his concept of using a 3D printer to print the clothes we wear,The author focuses intends to sharpen the idea of 3D printing and applies it to his concept of manufacturing clothes within the comfort of your home. In order for a piece of clothing to be produced, the design of the clothing must be downloaded into the machine followed by cartridges of specially designed threads. The main concept of creating a piece of clothing is still being worked upon with a high potential of productivity in future years. The main limitation of the article is that is did not take an indepth look at this theory however it goes a reasonable good of giving a breif scoop so we understand the concept. This article will not form the basis of my research; however it will be useful supplementary information for my research other influences 3D printing will portray.

The Practical Use of 3D Printing in Short-Run Production | Made Different | Scoop.it

Much of the time, 3D printing is utilized for prototype creation not final production. Temporary products are created to test and measure how well a product will work before final design approval and before tooling is set up for the final product.
