Earlier this year Shorey Designs invented fabric-based flexible scale-maille. They did this by 3D printing individual scales with a backing tulle fabric, embedded after half a dozen print layers.
We could not resist giving this a go at Basingstoke Makerspace. As you can see we produced a robust set of scales with the tulle backing firmly attached. Several applications come to mind: using the technique for Cosplay items, creating scale-backed gloves for bike riding or making an interesting necklace and ear-rings. We really like the idea of using it for really neat cat armour.
Why not come along to Basingstoke Makerspace Open Evening any Tuesday between 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm and think about what you might make.
