Rapid manufacturing for pseudo-textile structures which conform to the body.
Led by Philip Delamore with external partners ‘Freedom of Creation’ and ‘Complex Matters’ this project aims to create body conformable seamless and flexible textile structures, through the use of generative software, which allows the converting of 3D body data into textile like structure.
The personalised design potential includes a unique shape bespoke fitted to an individual, together with colouration and surface pattering.
The contribution to the Considerate Design process includes efficient use of materials, less waste, localised ‘on demand’ production and fewer travel miles, a one stop process using less labour.
The project is part of the research initiative Designing for the 21st Century funded by the research councils AHRC and EPSRC.
