Virtual Designing in 3D for Textile Printing

Ink jet printing onto fabric has many advantages when compared to traditional printing methods. The ability for fine line detail and near infinite number of colors enables a near photographic image on the textile substrate. The greatest benefit however is the freedom from the requirement of a print repeat and the ability to engineer a print design. To engineer a print, a product developer brings the garment marker into a textile design software program and creates the textile design within the marker. This design engineering process requires the collaborative efforts of both a product and textile designer, allowing a better marriage of shape and pattern design. For instance, a panoramic scene could continue across a product, or around a three dimensional form. The textile design once created on a two-dimensional surface, now is manipulated across the shape of the body so that it becomes a three dimensional design.

  • For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.

    Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
