3D printing could have a big impact on the clothing industry, according to an article published in National Geographic magazine.
“We’re going to see a lot of these things, particularly with the clothing sector, that we’ve seen a lot in the past two years that are really disruptive to the business model,” said Jason Lutman, a fashion designer and senior vice president at Lutmans.
“There are a lot more ways to take a product, and it’s going to be really difficult for us to adapt to them.”
The technology, which Lutmann and his colleagues are using to create clothing, is already available for many home and office projects.
But Lutsteinman and his team have created a system that can produce a fabric using only a printer’s power.
The technology is called a 3D printer filament, and Lutzman said the filament can be made from almost any material, including a variety of fabrics.
The printer’s design and material properties are designed to mimic the appearance of the original item, and to make the material adhere to the fabric.
The material will adhere to each fabric layer with a thin layer of fabric sandwiched between two layers of filament.
The resulting fabric will look and feel identical to the original fabric.
The company also says its technology is less costly than traditional methods of fabric production.
“The only difference is we’re printing at a much lower price point,” Lutsson said.
“So, it’s a lot cheaper to manufacture these things than it would be to buy and fabricate the fabric yourself.
There’s a pretty high barrier to entry.”
Lutman said the process is also less labor-intensive than fabric manufacturing, and the company is hoping to start using 3D filament in clothing by the end of the year.
“When we do that, we want to make sure that we’re doing a quality product,” Litman said.
