Electroloom is a 3D fabric printer that allows users to design and create seamless, ready-to-wear garments from scratch. It uses an electrospinning technique to turn a liquid polymer into a solid fabric, building up a complete textile structure layer by layer. The process begins by creating a 3D digital model of the garment using software such as CAD or 3D modeling tools. This model is then loaded into the Electroloom printer, which converts it into a fiber pattern used to create the fabric.
The liquid polymer is contained in a reservoir within the printer and is charged with an electric field, which causes the polymer to form into fibers as it is ejected from the print head. These fibers then collect onto a rotating mandrel, gradually building the fabric in the desired shape and pattern. Once the fabric is complete, it is removed from the mandrel and washed to remove any excess polymer. The resulting garment is seamless, stretchy, and comfortable, with a unique texture that can be customized to suit the user’s preferences.
While the technology is still in its early stages and currently limited to producing relatively simple designs, it can revolutionize the fashion industry by enabling fast and customizable clothing production without the need for traditional manufacturing processes.
