Hacker News article 3D scans clothing for 3D printing.
But not without getting into some trouble.
If you have a pair of jeans that you’re looking to wear to a convention, or want to put on a new shirt, there’s a good chance that a scanner won’t be able to tell which is the real thing.
And if you want to wear the shirt for a party, that could be a problem.
To combat this, some companies have developed 3D-scanning clothing, such as Tasty, which sells a pair with a custom 3D print.
But these clothes are also expensive, and require a lot of extra materials.
Now, though, a company called 3D Coat is taking the 3D scanner idea one step further, and creating a fabric-based 3D garment.
It’s called 3d Coat Fabric.
3D coat fabric is made out of fabric, not 3D printed materials.
To make the garment, the company uses a process called a “microstructure folding,” which involves sewing together two layers of fabric and folding them together, creating a new layer of fabric.
The finished garment will look something like this: The design is pretty simple, but there are a few differences between this and the original 3D scan garments.
Instead of a 3D image of the clothing, 3D coating the fabric will create a printable 3D pattern, which can then be printed out.
For this reason, it’s better to print the garment using 3D printer software, rather than relying on a scanner.
3dcoat fabric can also be used to make clothes that aren’t actually 3D scanned, so there’s no need to make your own 3D fabric.
And since the fabric is printed out, it will look much cleaner than a scanner’s 3D model.
The company says it’s working with more and more manufacturers to expand its technology.
In fact, 3d coats can be made out to fit even tighter, and be more durable, if they’re coated with a synthetic material called polyamide.
But the real selling point is the fabric itself.
While 3D coats can do a lot more than scan clothing, they’re still expensive.
For now, it looks like 3Dcoat is working on a more affordable 3D cloth.
