Carnegie Mellon research project combines 3D printing with embedded textiles

Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University and the Rochester Institute of Technology have developed a set of techniques for combining 3D printing with embedded textiles. The techniques can create “rigid objects with embedded flexibility” and “soft materials imbued with additional functionality.” Researchers have attempted to combine 3D printing with embedded textiles It looks like a match made in heaven: textiles, packed with desirable characteristics like stretchability, twistability, and foldability, can maintain their shape when placed under tension and can be engineered with precise levels of stretchiness; 3D printing, a modern manufacturing process, can produce functional, rigid objects with complex geometries.
