3D printing just reached the next level

Like other 3D printers, Hudson’s contraption works off computerized renderings to make its objects, making it useful for both rapid prototyping and customizations. Operations-wise, the machine follows a process similar to Fused Deposition Modeling, except that it extrudes yarn instead of layers of melted plastic. A barbed felting needle attached to the printer head then punches the yarn repeatedly, binding individual fibers with the those in the layers below.
