Electroloom - First 3D Fabric Printer
Interesting 3D printing use case with potential. Electroloom uses an electrospinning process to convert liquids into solid fibers which are then deposited onto a 3D mold. It’s basically a machine that shoots fibers onto a 3D shape, where they bond together.
The Electroloom Developer Kit is a tool for designing and manufacturing custom 3D fabrics. When interacting with our machine, there is no need for thread, needles, or sewing. Instead, our users need only some simple CAD skills to design their patterns, and the Electroloom does the rest.
The following infographic explains the design process:
