Why use 3D printing In Art and Fashion?

The world of Art and Fashion is full of  beautiful designs and unique, innovative creations. 3D printing is in many ways a new, highly-accessible creative art; the art of taking a digital design and turning it into a physical model, layer by layer.  Prototyping is faster, and structures once thought impossible to make can now be produced.

What can you achieve with 3D printing?

The digital workflow means that it is just as easy to design and print moulds which can be used for casting as it is to print end-use models. Materials for printing include filaments like wood-fill and bronze-fill but 3D prints can also be primed and painted or finished with other effects. The process is ideal for customisation and bespoke designs.

Why 3D printing over other ways of making?

Digital technology allows for amendments to designs easily and 3D printing provides the ability to produce those designs anywhere in the world, exactly as you would print them in your workshop or studio. 3D print delicate, complex geometries which can’t be sculpted.
