Dalit Peleg, an Israeli fashiondesigner has 3D printed entire fashion collections using small consumer 3D printers. She experimented with different printers and different materials. She realized that materials like PLA are inflexible and not suitable for use as fabric. However, she found a material FilaFlex which is flexible and strong. She 3D printed a red jacket using a Witbox3D printer and FilaFlex material. Once she figured out how to 3D print textile, she started creating full collections including shoes. She has shown that we can design our own textile and manufacture clothes from our home using 3D printing.

World’s Smallest Image printing using 3D NanoDrip Technology
ETH Zurich and a startup called Scrona Ltd. have been announced world record holders for the smallest inkjet-printed color image. They used 3D NanoDrip printing technology to print a tiny image of clown fish around a sea anemone. The image is of the size of a cross section of a human hair. The image is 0.0092 mm2 in area and can only be seen under a microscope.
The image is printed using nano particles called quantum-dots. Quantum-dots can emit lights of different colors depending on their size. Layers of red, green, and blue quantum dots can be created to generate different colors.
Scrona also developed µPeek, a credit card sized microscope that can be used to see the tiny image. The microscope can be interfaced with smartphones allowing you to see it using the smartphone and to take pictures of the image.
