Fabrication files and documentation about the Embroidered Inflatables Sample Series
This dataset is a compilation of files related to the Embroidered Inflatable samples. The Embroidery Inflatables were created throug a material-driven process that aimed to explore the implications of using digital machine embroidery to create soft actuators for wearable or other textile-based applications. These inflatables are created through the combination of embroidery and silicone casting. The embroidery defines the shape and behavior of the inflatables, removing the complexity from the mold and casting process, and increasing the design possibilities. The methods of fabrication described can also support a robust integration of soft electronics and the actuators into textiles through a single fabrication process (embroidery).
In this dataset, you can find the documentation of the design process (including techninal specifications and fabrication method for each sample) and the embroidery files (.pes) of the samples. You can use these to reproduce or, better yet, design new interactive materials and soft interfaces based on digital machine embroidery.
