3D printers build interesting structures.Our challenge was to use traditional yarns.
What it does
MultiWeave is a 3d printer we built at Tallinn tehnohack a month ago. http://www.railreed.ee/multiweave
To operate the machine user needs to draw their weave pattern. The pattern must be turned into gcode to operate the CNC weaving machine. The output of the web app is the gcode.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
It's a complicated geometric structure of possible paths for the yarn and anchor points for the CNC machine, some steps take effort to realize.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
