Abstract

This research explores 3D printing of specialty filaments of electrically conductive composite filament and phosphorescent PLA and Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) blend filament on polyester knitted and cotton woven textiles. Conductive filament was selected for exploration since it can be used as connections between textile conduction lines and electrical components in electronic textile applications. Phosphorescent filament was selected as it can be used to enhance aesthetical and functional qualities of clothing. Bonding between the textile surface and the 3D printed filaments, flexibility and warping of the structures are analyzed through visual and haptic inspection. Resistance of electrically conductive composite filament printed onto different textiles was also examined.
