3D Systems have announced the launch of Fabricate, a new fashion application that reinvents textile design and pattern-making with 3D printing, using the company’s flagship Cube 3D printer.
Fabricate is the first application of its kind for the fashion industry, bringing customisation through matching and mixing colorful filaments with fabrics for both the professional and home users.
3D Systems .textile files, in different patterns and shapes, are printed on special fabric which can be sewn onto clothing and accessories for a customised, modernist look that reveals new layers of expression.
“Fabricate is a celebration of 3D technology and fashion fusion, a completely new way of accessorising that is accessible to everyone,” said Annie Shaw Creative Director, 3DS.
“3D Tech-Style printing lets fashion happen easily, enabling the creation of truly stunning attire. I can’t wait to see how people use this technology to push the boundaries of fashion.”
Fabricate comes in three different printed .textile designs that are exclusively available on Cubify.com, representing three unique sewing projects.
Each month 3DS plans to release a new set of .textile designs and projects, as well as unveil exciting collaborations with fashion designers that are mixing 3D technology with tradition.
You can find the Cube 3D Printer, which is compatible with the Fabricate app, here.
