MultiWeave is Kadi Pajupuu’s invention that allows for new kind of textile (or non textile thread material) weaving. It’s an ongoing applied research project of Tartu Art College.
The invention uses established CNC technology along with an original thread fixture. I participated in teams that built two prototypes of the machine, respectively called MultiWeave and SpiderWeave, mostly at hackathons.
Software part of the project was much larger. I coded the user interface that allows to draw patterns for weaving the new kind of textile. And then convert the pattern into g-code for running a CNC machine. You can check out the pattern software here: libahunt.ee/multiweave
