CNC Felting Machine #WearableWednesday

A RepRap that prints in felt! Takes in linear fiber filament aka yarn. From Carnegie Melon:

This paper considers the design, construction, and example use of a new type of 3D printer which fabricates three-dimensional objects from soft fibers (wool and wool blend yarn). This printer allows the substantial advantages of additive manufacturing techniques (including rapid turn-around prototyping of physical objects and support for high levels of customization and configuration) to be employed with a new class of material.
