Disney develops layered fabric 3-D printer

1 post in this topic

SEOUL, April 17 (UPI) -- Most plastic is pretty hard -- not ideal for making soft, squeezable toys and playthings for little ones. New technology from Disney aims to solve the problem.

Scientists at Disney Research, Carnegie Mellon University and Cornell University have designed and built a 3-D printer that constructs objects out of layers of fabric, not plastic. The newly developed machine can make lovable bunnies, balls, dolls, cellphone cases -- anything, really -- all made out of soft, squishy layers of woven thread and yarn.
