Welcome!

As I was missing a group about sewing, fabrics, threads and fashion, here it is!

What it's all about?

  • post your things
  • make design requests
  • discuss topics
  • get help
  • get in touch with others
  • invite others to the group
  • get your fabrics running ;)

Examples for things:

  • chain mail or other 3d printable fabric
  • tools like scissors, rulers, spools, sewing machine adapters, sewing guides, templates
  • tool organizers like needle organizers, spool boxes
  • items to sew onto your clothes like LED covers, patches
  • helper machines like wool winder, looms, knitting machines
  • accessories that you would normally sew like wallets
    or other fancy stuff like tests of 3D printing on real fabric

Request: Spool Box

by rublind

My partner has requested a box (with a lid) to fit various spool sizes - she has about ~12 spools. They're roughly 1in wide, and 2.5in tall.

Thanks!

3D Printed Flower Crop top

by thehotender

Hello! I'm publishing this flowered crop top, proposing 3d printing as a new way to create fashion.
This is not for sewing, as my proposal was to make a garment that you can mount right out the 3D printer, but as you are a group of people interested in fashion and into 3D printing I think that can interest you.
I include a PDF explaining the material needed (flexible TPU) and how to create a knit/net-like texture on the garment that will make it really nice at the touch and how to size it for yourself.

Beautiful Lattice Structures for design projects

by RobotMama

Lattice structures normally are intended to optimize functional parts by making them light-weight and strong by filling the inside with a complex structure. This is used in aerospace technology to save on fuel while flying and still maintaining structural integrity and strength of the parts that are optimized.

Nowadays these structures can be achieved with metal 3D printing (laser sintering, laser melting and the like). But these structures are also interesting from a design perspective. The pure beauty of them inspires to use these structures in architecture, fashion or other fields.

Here are my tests with different topologies, printed on a Formlabs Form2 (SLA printing) with clear UV resin. If you want to create your own structures head over to NTopolgy (https://www.ntopology.com) they have a beautiful free tool for that.

You will find more footage next week on my Instagram, Facebook and Youtube accounts.

I hope you got inspired like me and get hands-on designing. Let me know in the comments what projects you came up with.

Cheers RobotMama
