Textiles from the 3D Printer
The process is among the most exciting innovations for many fields. Besides printing models and prefabricated components out of synthetics, metal, synthetic resin and ceramic, the 3D production doesn’t stop at the clothing industry. Whether Haute Couture lingerie, shoes, or functional clothing – textiles form the 3D printer are the future. Next to the low production and material costs, printed textiles are convincing in their sustainability. All the more important to get acquainted with the new system.
Marouscha Levy Introduces 3D Printing Technology
She is offering the four-day course in the essentials of 3D printing in textiles to trainees and professionals from the branch of theater at the Feronia Festival for Backstage Art and Craft.
