Conference Paper
3D Printed Textiles from Textile Code: Structural Form and Material Operations

Translation of 3 traditional textile structures to digital code to make 3D printed textiles is discussed in this paper. The relationship of the behavior of that printed textile to the geometry and material of the textile unit is also examined. If architects, designers and scientists developing textile technologies for buildings, clothing or other objects can begin to understand and digitally construct different categories of textile structures, as well as understand how the behavior of that textile relates to its structure, then they can better understand how to design form active systems, or structures that are able to move when required.

Abstract

Translation of 3 traditional textile structures to digital code to make 3D printed textiles is discussed in this paper. The relationship of the behavior of that printed textile to the geometry and material of the textile unit is also examined. If architects, designers and scientists developing textile technologies for buildings, clothing or other objects can begin to understand and digitally construct different categories of textile structures, as well as understand how the behavior of that textile relates to its structure, then they can better understand how to design form active systems, or structures that are able to move when required.
