Over the past three years, the 3D Knit Fieldlab has lead industrial research into using 3D knitting machines for distributed sustainability, personalized products, parametric practice, and emerging technologies. We present the results of working with the most innovative knitters in the Netherlands.

3D Knit Fieldlab Projects

The 3D Knit Fieldlab is an initiative of the Wearable Data Studio, lead by the Fashion Research and Technology group of the AUAS (HvA). Thanks to support from industry partners and ClickNL, we carried out four innovative projects with Ministry of Knit, New Industrial Order, Knitlab, Bilihome, Saxion University of Applied Sciences, Modint, and TU/Eindhoven.
