Rapid Prototyping experiments
A collaborative piece of research work with Joanna Lewis, Textile designer from the RCA.
We modelled 3-dimensional knits on the computer and printed them in rubber using the rapid prototyping facilities at the RCA. We were able to create knits of varying yarn thickness, designing knit patterns that would be impossible to do using traditional techniques.
