New 3-D Printer Makes Soft Interactive Objects

New 3-D Printer Makes Soft Interactive Objects

A new type of 3D printer can turn yarn into soft, cuddly objects. 3-D printing typically uses metals and plastics, although researchers are also using them to make food stuff , tissue and body parts . Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University who designed the new printer say they wanted to extend 3D printing to a new class of materials for making objects that people would interact with. The device is a kind of printer-sewing machine hybrid. It takes designs from a computer and converts them into 3D objects using a loose felt material. The resulting objects are similar to hand-knitted versions, said CMU computer science professor Scott Hudson in a press release . Hudson developed the new printer with Disney Research support, and presented it at the ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems . Most common low-end 3D printers are based on Fused Deposition Modeli...
