Textile files for your desktop 3D printers #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Textiles for the Cube 3D printer

Here’s an interesting set of files to print “3D textiles” on a Cube 3D printer, patterns that might be interesting for other printers and types of printing as well! Cubify’s really pushing to encourage exploration of this technology — very exciting as it is an area many of us with desktop 3D printers have only recently been able to start to explore with improvements in printing firmware! Textile Files for your Cube 3D printer:

Imagine being able to create your dream wardrobe simply by downloading a textile pattern, digitally cutting and combining pieces of fabric, customizing the measurements and pressing “print” on your 3D printer. This fantasy is becoming closer and closer to reality with these textile files by our very own Cubify teammate, Orion. Today Cubify releases a new set of textile files that will make 3D printed fashion technology accessible to everyone. Today we are releasing the PyralinkCrystallink, and Halite textiles. These three textile patterns are the first in a series of textiles we will be releasing as our Wednesday Wearable feature.

3D printing applications in the fashion industry have reached a pivotal point. The tools for creating 3D printed fashion are finally accessible to the public. 3D printing allows the designer to turn their wildest designs into physical, wearable parts. Intricate, sculptural pieces, that normally require months of manual labor and construction can now be made with press of a “3D print” button. High fashion designers have already seamlessly integrated 3D printing pieces into their runway collections, but Team Cubify wants to see 3D printed technology available to the consumer.

We see the incredible applications 3D printing has in fashion and wearable technology, so we have put our most talented, creative designers on the task of developing the tools to best foster the 3D printed fashion ecosystem.  Ultimately, we want to provide you, the designers, with the ground-up tools to begin experimenting with the capabilities of 3D printed textiles. We hope that the 3D design community will continue our research by producing beautiful, environmentally friendly, wearable clothing….

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
