Here is a super cool way to 3D print awesome textured fabric. Shared by UncleJessy on Thingiverse:

These are some very basic geometric shapes that were made quickly in Tinkercad as a test for how you can directly print on fabric.

This is a really cool and easy project to do.

  1. Print the file
  2. Pause the printer at about the 2nd or 3rd layer
  3. Secure down some Tulle fabric http://amzn.to/2sqeroL
  4. Resume printing

If you’re using simplify3d you can also insert this code into the additional terminal commands to have the printer stop at the 3rd layer, move the print head out of the way for your to secure the fabric, then allow you to resume printing

{REPLACE “\n; layer 3, Z = ” “; layer 3\nG28 Y0 X0\nM300\nM25\nG92 E0\nG28 Y0 X0\n; layer 3 “}

I first saw this concept from Shorey Designs – Make sure to checkout his instagram page
