3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM), has quickly evolved from a tool created for prototypes to a fully developed technology that completely changes the way we design and manufacture objects. This course shows the framework of how we can apply this incredible technology to our future fashion projects. By implementing AM technology in our projects, we can create solutions that until now were not possible using conventional manufacturing tools.
The student will learn the true added value of AM technologies and how they are transforming the process of conception and design. Work will be done on topics such as mass customization, individual one, metamaterials, hybrids, etc. and the student will discover how fashion and design companies around the world are already implementing these technologies in their current and future design strategy.
