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.
