Hackathon TUDelft: 3D Textile shaping
Despite the ‘covid-limitations’ our latest Research & Development project UNSEAM – Digital Design Method” has been progressing well over the last couple of months!
We have been working on a digital design method for our digital, on-demand seamlessly shaping textile technology. Researching what it means to design directly in 3D while containing the aesthetics. Classical pattern thinking does not work for digital manufacturing techniques.
The aim? To explore the possibilities to create a digital design method for the designer to work with. Developing a new interaction between the designer, the producer and the machine.
In order to achieve this goal, we made some good progress in the last year with our partners TU Delft (Crossing Parallels Programme) and the Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI). With materials produced by Enschede Textielstad and Lohmann, students were able to experiment and to match the digital side with the physical world.
