3D print a No Man’s Sky logo directly onto a T-shirt – htxt.africa

Most makers understand that 3D printing clothing is somehow old hat, but what of 3D printing onto clothes? YouTube content creator PRESS RESET has done only this, creating his own No Man’s Sky T-shirt.
The man behind the channel, named Preston, explains:
So I decided to see if I may print directly onto a shirt, and appear, it worked! So what i did was I inserted the Fleks3D plate on top of the create plate and and so I clamped down the shirt to the create plate. I figured that for the reason I was may already level for the Fleks3D plate, and so I should have that plate in between. I printed this at 0.25 height on my Flashforge MakerBot clone for the reason it is the biggest machine I have without a moving create surface. I don’t want the plate moving around only in case the cloth gets caught up on a thing.
The “Fleks3D plate” that he mentions is a flexible cover for a print bed that lets you lift your print off once it’s done without worrying of it sticking to the bed. It is like a non-stick silicon mould utilized in baking, but for 3D printing.

This is a clever use for the innovation that we never idea of. It opens up a lot of doors for custom shirts that are a bit additional special than the regular silkscreen prints We in addition imagine that this has most uses in cosplay and other costume building.
As for the No Man’s Sky connection here, it’s of little consequence actually yet the game is (finally) coming out relatively soon. Similar to the guy in the video, we are in addition amazingly excited by this game, that is promising us the moon… and the rest of the universe.
