Open Knit: 3D Knitting

The world of technology is forever evolving and it is clear that this development is important to the future of design. Many designers make use of the 3D printers that are becoming more impressive the further the technology is experimented with. But now, a man called Gerard Rubio has created a knit machine that works much like a 3D printer. The details are typed into a computer and with a simple press of a button, the machine will begin knitting garments. It’s also cost effective with him only charging 550€.


More information from the creator himself can be found on the Open Knit blog

I feel that exploring new ways in which to produce our fashion can lead to interesting changes within the industry in the future and it is something that should be taken seriously for the good of the Design Industry.
