This device was created for New Textiles, a class at the MIT Media Lab. The goal was to create a machine that could be used to plot large clothing patterns on sheets of fabric as a way of making it easier to share clothing designs online. The CoreXY mechanism made it possible to construct the plotter using fabric. One discovery along the way was the notion of sewing 3D printed objects onto fabric.
