3D technology has been marching towards new industries in recent years and it surprisingly entered the apparel industry this year. Fashion technology pioneer Julia Daviy has launched the world’s first zero-waste customizable 3D printed skirt. After several years of exploration, 3D technology finally found its place in clothing industry.
After the concept of “The Liberation Collection” was unveiled at New York Fashion Week in 2018, Julia Daviy began working on 3D printed clothing aiming to make a breakthrough in standard clothing customization. And their group made it happen this year in June. Julia Daviy said, It is essential now to produce clothing with simplified digital customization, using flexible materials, and 3D printing technology. We have achieved this goal, and I think consumers will respond quickly. We can’t ignore the potential after we proved the feasibility of 3D printed clothes. But we also know that only when the 3D printed clothing is beautiful, comfortable and eco-friendly and made as a standard of this industry, are we truly successful.”
3D printing technology is expected to become a hit for the industry to get zero-waste clothing. What’s more exciting is the maturity of 3D scanning, what people usually turn to before they jump to 3D printers. 3D scanning is a fast and easy way to obtain accurate and watertight 3D models for 3D printer. Revopoint 3D, an technology driven and leading 3D technology company, has been working on developing high-accuracy 3D scanners and cameras that are easy to use and affordable for even entry-level users. Tanso S1, the world’s first Android tablet 3D scanner launched early this year, offers high model accuracy in spite of its simple and compact design. Tanso S1 can be a great companion for clothing modeling, it will certainly improve the efficiency for the fashion designer while greatly relieve waste of resources.
