In the recent years, the use of 3D printing in the fashion industry is no longer news to people: garments, ornaments and running shoes- all sorts things that people can think of, the 3D printing can make them real from fanciful design. Besides the ability to create shapes that previous imaginable in traditional production, 3D Printing optimizes the production process since with the technology, the production is close to maximum efficiency with no waste material, and 3D printing can cater the need of full customization. Unsurprisingly, 3D printing is used in phone case production.
As wonderful as the technology sounds, there are issues like property of material, deterioration of the environment and the associated cost of massive commercial production. However, in foreseeable future, 3D printing can overcome such obstacles.
