3D printing offers designers the freedom to create one off designs that are tailor made specifically for the clients. It allows them to express their creativity by printing complex shapes and patterns accurately.
Another advantage of 3D printing is that it allows fashion houses and designers alike to test their designs before going into mass manufacturing. Likewise complex designs too can be printed and tested.
Since 3D printing is an additive manufacturing process there is little or no wastage of material which in turn has a positive effect on the bottom line. On-demand printing and manufacturing also drastically reduces warehousing and storage costs.
Since a designer no longer has to wait to manufacture their designs, they can simply test them out on a prototype and make modifications as required. This allows the designer to quickly make changes and bring the final product to market faster while also aiding a designer in creating more designs within the same time period.
For any fashion company, the ability to create more designs, unique and customized designs as well as personalised one-off designs, that too in a fast and cost-effective method, helps them leverage and differentiate their business from their competition.
Many spare parts of the machinery used for making garments, such as industrial sewing machines, are either very expensive or no longer produced. Some luxury houses have started 3D printing such parts.
