OpenKnit is an open-source knitting printer that lets you create your own clothes at home

Spanish designer, Gerard Rubio came up with this open source platform for his final project in university where he spent a lot of time learning about 3D printing, textiles and machinery. Rubio explained to us that, “the project started as a simple curiosity to experiment and hybridize tools and disciplines and it ended up being a new production system.” At first, Rubio had little experience with knitting, but after a lot of research, he adapted knowledge from the 3D printing world to develop the machine. Printing his first sweater was the most challenging project Rubio has completed thus far and it really shows extend of what OpenKnit can do.
