Exploring alterable 3D printed textiles

Open Structures is a design project that explores the potential of alterability in 3D printed textile structures. One of the results thus far is a new construction system that can be used to design textile structures that are stable yet open to alteration, and which can assist in creating textiles that are not fixed in terms of their original design; rather, these structures can be developed further, taking on several different forms and being customised to suit different products, spaces, garments, etc. Open Structures was initiated by Linnéa Nilsson for her PhD thesis, and this blog presents the project and its results thus far.
