It was only a matter of time before 3d printing technology would produce something that touches all of us every day. The Electroloom 3D printer makes seamless fabric from liquid by using a process known as electrospinning.
The team came up with the idea for the Electroloom after working at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, to 3D-print artificial blood vessels. liquids are turned to tiny fibers that are sprayed onto a mold where they gather and bond together thanks to an electrical field created inside the machine.
Once the mold is covered, the fabric can be carefully peeled off, and voila − you’re ready to set a new fashion trend. The creators say they’re currently working with a polyester cotton blend and that the Electroloom will ship with enough liquid pods to make at least seven beanies, four tank tops or three skirts — or anything else you can design. They also say that they’re working on new silk and acrylic fabrics.
So far the Kickstarter campaign is doing well, with more than half the $50,000 goal raised well in advance of the June 15 end date. If the campaign succeeds, Electrolooms are expected to ship — worldwide — in March 2016.
