l'impression 3D au service de la couture

3D printing at the service of sewing

3D printers have been more accessible on the market for a few years, however their uses are not so simple. The printing technique is simple, depositing thin layers of a material on top of each other to create an object is like baking a cake with several layers! The most common material is PLA or ABS type plastic with a 1.75mm diameter filament.

To print an object you must first create it from CAD software (3D design software). Depending on the complexity of the object to be created, you will need some trial and error in order to achieve the desired result.

It is also possible to download already created objects for free or under licenses, but you still have to find it and often adapt or modify it for specific needs.

Once the object file has been created or acquired, it would be necessary to program the route that the printer must go through to make the object, this step is quite simple because software like Cura will do all the work for you! The object can then be printed. Patience is essential, because 3D printing takes time depending on the size of the object.
