Israel based Nano Dimension Technologies has conducted a successful test for 3D printing of conductive traces onto a treated fabric, in collaboration with an European producer of functional textile fabrics. The test was carried out using Nano Dimension's unique Agcite Silver Nanoparticle conductive ink and the Dragonfly 2020 3D Printer platform.

According to the company, the experiment provides evidence that Nano Dimension's technology can successfully print conductors on a fabric, thus enabling the creation of smart functional fabrics without limitations resulting from motion, folding and wearing.

Based on the requirements of the European company, Nano Dimension adjusted the printing process in order to print electronics and sensors as an integral part of the fabric.

The smart textile market is estimated at around $800 million and is expected to reach $4.72 billion by 2020, with an annual CAGR of 33.58 per cent by 2020. (AR)
