During one of his recent interviews, Bradley Rothenberg shared his opinion that three-dimensional printers can help the garment industry to create body specific garments for users. However, currently most of the 3D printed garments are made from nylon, and three-dimensional printing still needs a lot of research to reach peoples’ drawing room.
