Research Project
Printing Stitches

of materials, fabrics and plastics (latex, ABS and rubber).

‘No stitch, no story?’

I’ve been researching the history of fashion to see how important the quality of the making proces is, but also the importance of the aesthetic appeal of stitches and connections. Why do we use stitches and not a whole lot of other joining methods. Because if you analyse stitches, you will find a lot of obstacles. In fact with the needle you perforate the fabric so it is more likely to rupture and usually if a garment ruptures it is the stitch itself.


MATERIAL RESEARCH

TEST3-450PIXEL
On the photo above you see a few experiments with different types
of materials, fabrics and plastics (latex, ABS and rubber).

It is my vision to combine craftmanship and computercontrolled fabrication on textiles. I would like to combine these 2 aspacts to a hybrid and create a new way of assembling.

(On the picture above you see different samples
printed with PLA and FLEX).

I’ve been doing a lot of tests on different types of textile to see what type of fabric is the best one to print on, and also to see on that type of fabric the plastic from the 3D printer sticks to the best.

Also it’s very important to explore almost every option that the 3D printer has as to printing on textiles. For example by testing different types of plastic, changing the printing speed, and vary in temperatures. (See picture above).

 

CREATING MY OWN STITCHING-PRINTER

For the next part of this project I am going to make my own stitching printer. The advantage of a regular sewing is the freedom to move your fabric by hand in almost every direction. This is something that is missing with a usual 3D printer. I want to combine a sewing machine with a 3D printer to create my own printing sewing machine, which creates the freedom to work on a sewing machine with the new techniques of the 3D printer.

How can I create movements based on motion that is created by the printer itself? (See GIF below)
