3D printed fabric
I was thinking about printing on tulle, then about just printing tulle, but while thinking about weaves and structures of fabric, I remembered that knit fabric has at it's basics a very simple structure that could may be used in making elastic, bendable surfaces with 3D printing. I started by drawing some test loops by hand, tracing them to vector by inkscape and extruding the sketch into a 3D object in Fusion360. I printed a couple of the strings and tried to assemble them to form the knit, and while it kind of worked and bended in a nice way, the structure didn't lay very flat. I wanted to make some better loops for further tests, so I sketched a line of loops in Fusion360 and continued my tests.
