The 3D printer isn’t only for fashion, but for food, design and architecture etc. as well. Firstly, you will need an idea, concept or design made with computer aided design or animation modeling software on your computer, a shoe or a dress for example. It’s your choice what kind of material you want to use, but it depends on your 3D printer. Depending on the size of your design and what material it’s made of, it will take a couple hours and sometimes a couple days before it’s finished. Your design will be printed layer on top of a layer.
