"Every day we see and hear about 3D printing being used in different applications," noted Bre Pettis CEO of MakerBot. "It is especially exciting to us to see the fashion industry embrace 3D printing. We've always known it was a very successful tool for modeling and prototyping hardware and jewelry associated with fashion, but to see the evolution into clothing, especially using new materials like our MakerBot Flexible Filament, is very exciting."
The MakerBot Flexible Filament material is expected to be commercially available in the next few weeks.
