Print a 3D logo on your t-shirt! You can 3D print directly onto a t-shirt with your home printer using standard PLA, ABS or other regular filament.
What do you need?
Standard 3D printer using regular PLA or ABS filament. We used an Ultimaker 2 with a heated bed and a Zeepro Zim, without a heated bed.
T-shirt. Cotton, polyester, or blends. Large surface decorations will interfere with the extruder.
Small clips. We recommend you use plastic clips or small clothespins. You don’t want anything that will scratch your build plate and you also want small clips so they won’t hit the sides of the printer when the build plates moves.
3D model. We used Tinkercad and prints downloaded from the Thingiverse.
Software for slicing. We used Cura.
Fabric glue (optional). Flexible fabric glue such as Fabri-tac or Jewel-it
