Sinterit’s SLS 3D Printing and Flexible Materials Used to Make Strong Textiles for Opera Costumes

Engineering, textiles, and additive manufacturing are different industries with different growth patterns, but they are connected by an important point: structures. Additionally, each of these industries have to struggle with limitations in order to build products for less money and materials and at a higher rate of speed. But rapid prototyping has changed how these […]

Bally Ribbon Mills Develops Film Infusion Capability for 3D Woven Joints

I remember a long-term elementary school art project I participated in once that involved students weaving small bits of fabric together on a loom in order to make brightly colored textile objects that could only be described as ugly rugs for guinea pigs – that’s how little they were. I hated the tedious project, and […]

3D Printed Fabric Could Help Keep Wearers Cooler

3D Printed Fabric Could Help Keep Wearers Cooler

If you live in a hot climate, or even one that just experiences hot periods, there are few really good arguments for putting clothes on. Trying to maintain your metaphorical cool as sweat is pouring down your back and your core temperature reaches critical overload can be nigh on impossible. In addition, poor temperature controls […]
