3D Printing Design: Additive manufacturing and the materials revolution (Required Reading Range)

3D Printing for Fashion is the first book that has been designed to give both designers and industry leaders access to the conceptual and practical knowledge needed to participate in what promises to be the biggest cultural/social transformation since the last industrial revolution.

Organized around the three key topics of materials/production technologies, computational geometry/simulation and design methodologies, 3D Printing for Fashion will provide both design students and industry professionals with the know-how, skills and confidence needed to critically engage with a rapidly evolving design landscape of tools, materials and software applications. The book will crucially unpack emerging design methodologies through a series of project-driven step-by-step tutorials and will demystify complex new design and manufacturing processes through interviews with leaders in the design and 3D printing industries.
