Abstract

Over the last ten years, researchers, technologists, designers, retailers and manufacturers have worked on embedding 3D printing (3DP) technology in all types of manufacturing industries including textile, apparel and fashion industry. The development of this technology has enabled designers to design more conveniently and manufacturers to reduce production time and cost significantly. Although 3D printing technology is gradually developing in textile and fashion industry, textile and fashion researchers and manufacturers have mostly worked on designing wearable technology, footwear and fashion accessories but rarely on everyday wearing. This review paper aims to describe the Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing technology, as it is mostly used by textile and fashion, designers, manufacturers and researchers for developing various textile patterns and fashion items.

Keywords: 3D printing; Textile fashion, Waste management; Sustainable fashion; Circular textile
