This paper explores the possibility of introducing 3D printed part into commercial garment production. The research investigates the cost and time needed to create 3D printed components for garment construction at the sample stage and provides example of garment construction techniques. This research is completed in order to investigate whether such manufacturing method would benefit the garment manufacturer and to define areas need to be improved for 3D printing to become an essential part of mass manufacture in the fashion industry. By completing the garment and analyzing the process it has been proved that it is possible to partially 3D-print garment that can serve several benefits.
