Hands on Digital Fabrication Technologies

OER: New frontier for Textile. Exploring Digital Fabrication Technologies

Objective and scope

The framework of technological access first, and the vision of design results related to digital technologies later, allow to envision the latent possibilities that may find space even in industrial applications, if properly grasped and scaled. Therefore, the activity has as its objective the conception and prototyping of design solutions that deploy subtractive and additive manufacturing technology for wearables with textile components (e.g. 3D punch cards, zero waste design, printing on fabric, creating flexible geometries using a rigid material, etc.). The goal of this activity is to nurture creativity in a way that is closely related to experimentation through technology.
