What is 3D printing?
The creation of 3D printed object is made thanks to an additive process. A computer software can help you create a Cad design. The 3D printing machine is made of a subtractive process. It allows an easy manufacturing process.You can produce complex shape and totally functional.
Instead of using more material like the traditional method it uses less material in less time. The additive manufacturing process solidifies objects that take any shapes possible. Compare to the traditional methods the computer programs allows your imagination and your wildest creativity to take shapes. We could see that in some collections made by Iris van Herpen. Where the 3D printed clothes are more architectural and artistic. Any visions can translate from a 3 d printed object. From the wildest creative one to the common object we found in the store. There is so much room for creativity.

How to make it?
There is a program that you can learn in a class or totally for free in my ebook if you wish to download it. You can draw your creation on a cad design and it will translate print thanks to the additive manufacturing.
It is an extremely easy process to learn and the most important to make it in the 3 D printing business from what I understood is your business plan and if you really deeply understand what it is about.

What does that allow?
You can buy a 3D printer and create your own product and sell them. The first working 3D printer was developed at MIT in 1993.
The general principle is that it allows the computer Cad drawing to take a physical form.It is a little bit of magic but there is magic in what we don’t really understand. The CAD pardons me to not have explained earlier in the computer software that allows your creation to take form. It is based on a 3D model but you do not need to know how to draw in order to start using it.
You will need to look for errors in the cad file before printing. The process of 3D printing are layers added up to each other in order to form a material object. You can choose a different material for the different effect it does not have to be plastic.
After the CAD you will usually run a prototype version. Your prototype and printing will be really sleek depending on the quality of the printer. An inexpensive printer will not give the same effect as an expensive printer.

How 3D printing entered the world of fashion?
3 D printing is not yet vastly common but it is entering in the world of fashion. Name brand such as Adidas, Nike for athletic shoes. For example, Nike did a football athletic from bags to shoes. This proves the quality and the capacities that 3D printing offers.
Adidas did a 3D printing, athletic and daily life/ pret a porter collection. For examples, the futurecraft 4D are partially 3D printed according to 3D printing.com. The sneakers are made from ocean recycled waste. As 3D printing continues to allow the costumer obsess and personal customer to customer process it will reshape the footwear industry. Will this shoes Adidas is starting to reshape the future.

Why is 3D printing good for fashion?
As the example of Adidas showed, it can be good for the environment. It can be plastics but can be made out of so many types of material. You will have to do a little bit of research on that. This blog will as well help you along the way as we will also talk about new materials on the market that are as important as spandex.
In the informative e-book, there is two flow chart that shows you the strategy that 3D printing offers. You are able to download it here. You can build a costumer obsess business. You can start from your bedroom if you want to because of it costumer to customer model.
You can ask for your customer to upload a picture of their feet and built a prototype based on their own foot. Or any part of their body as a matter of fact. It is an attractive business for people who like personal things and there is a market for it. You will be able to find the whole strategy in my e-book on Why 3D printing is a costumer obsess business.
Then, we will also review the novelty in the supply chain which will allow you to have a rapid delivery. However, it is really good for the fashion industry at all levels.
3 D printing is not a disruptive business, and you do not want to be disruptive. I agree with Peter Thiel from Zero To One, you do not want to be disruptive as a business. We misunderstand disruption and niche. Indeed, Paypal did not intend to disrupt the credit card business or western union chain; same for vavoom. They just intend for example to find their niche where their product can solve a particular problem. Such as eBay or Alibaba transaction between two sellers or a seller and costumer; or two individual exchanging money with each other. Same goes for 3D printing. It does not intend to revolutionize the supply chain or the entire customer relationship industry. You have to take advantage of what it offers as a product for a specific niche.
I would like to conclude with the words of Vanessa Friedman fashion director and chief of fashion critics says the 3D printing “says 3D printing will have a significant value for companies down the road especially since it transformed into a printed yourself for shoppers.” ” there is a real sense that it is not going to happen anytime soon. But it will happen and it will create a dramatic change about how we think about intellectual propriety and how things are in the supply chain.”
Post scriptum: You can already patent 3D printing however it is more common in the industrial design industry.
