Material Maker

I am currently exploring methods for modeling Textiles in Grasshopper with the ultimate aim of eliminating the need for proprietary textile design programs. I am interested in developing descriptions that will allow other designers, architects or clients to take part in the design and specification of materials, as well as being readable to textile and other manufacturers. I am also collaborating on a project with Amit Zoran to prototype these designs on an Objet Connex Multi Material 3D printer. The goal is to test the performance and behavior of these woven constructions when printed with materials of varying degrees of flexibility.
