Description

The application of 3DP technology in fashion is still being investigated in academia. This research examines the integration of 3D body scanning and 3DP. When developing accessories, body adornment, and clothing embellishments, the use of a body scan as base geometry allows the designer to edit and model directly onto the body resulting in an accurate fit straight from the printer. Using a digital body scan also permits the designer to envision the finished look without having to create multiple prototypes and conduct multiple fittings.
