3D Printing in Textiles


Wednesday 05th November 2014

11:30 CET

Presentation Area next to the PERFORMANCE FORUM

While consumer 3D printers attract widespread attention, the principle of “additive manufacturing” can be seen as a new way of thinking textile manufacturing. This talk will bring together a panel of experts, designers and knitting machinery makers to discuss how textile and garment manufacturing can benefit from the technologies that have made 3D printing possible. If the jacquard loom is considered the origin of computers, then knitting could be paving the way from 2D to 3D manufactured clothing.

The discussing debate guests are:
- Mr Karsten Bleymehl, Owner of MRC- Materials Research & Consulting
- Mr Jörg Hartmann, Head pf Fashion & Technology, H. Stoll GmbH & Co
- Ms Pia Hinze, Independent Fashion Designer
