3D weaver by Oluwaseyi Sosanya

The 3D weaver is a loom specially designed for weaving in three dimensions. The Honeycomb weave is based on a simple hexagonal structure and can withstand impacts greater than 300g. The 0~90 degree pattern has a comfortable compressive quality and holds similar properties to soft injection foams found in shoe soles. The ZigZAG weave demonstrates auxetic behavior. The weave is light and extremely flexible. These are the primary early-explored structures that have many applications in medical, architecture, vehicle, aerospace, and sportswear industries.
