How I Made My Cyberpunk LED Jacket with 3D Printing on Fabric

Check out Sophy Wongs cyberpunk inspired NeoPixel jack with 3D Printed diffusers. Fantastic mix of 3d printing, electronics and textiles. Be sure to watch the video, it’s super awesome!

Walkthrough of my 3D printed cyberpunk LED jacket, plus an in-depth explanation of how I 3D print directly onto nylon mesh fabric. I wrote a full tutorial for this project which was published in HackSpace Magazine, and in my Wearable Tech Projects book from Raspberry Pi Press (link below).

Please also check out the work of David Shorey and Billie Ruben, who are both pioneers of this 3D printing on fabric technique, and who inspired me to try it:
