Morphables is a research project in the field of programmable textiles. By means of 3D printing, polymer is applied to stretched fabric. The act of pre-stressing the textile embeds energy into it. The 3D printed pattern acts as a constraint. When the textile is released the 3D transformation takes place. The aim of this project was to explore the possibilities and limitations of 3D printing onto textiles and to explore possible uses.
