A compact digital knitting machine has been developed by Spanish designer which is known as Kniterate. It is bringing an affordable as well as compact version of industrial knitting machines to our workshop.
It combines the technology which is a nod to the growing influence of 3d printing in fashion with the conventional method of knitting. It can automatically turn our digital design into the knitted garments.
The result is a tool which can enhance but not replaces the time honoured process of producing the knitted garments. So this design has been made which is the easier process of designing and knitting.
It is the bridge between the industrial knitting machines as well as the old fashioned method. Through this technology, we can start creating scarves, beanies, ties which will be ready to worn as well as we can also assemble our own dresses, sweaters and even shoes.
We have the opportunity to create a design and kniterate is ready to knit it for us. This process is helpful in making it easy to scale up from the one-offs to production quantities for us.
It is lightweight as well as breathable and adapts to our body. Unlike cut and sew, there is almost no waste as product is knitted to shape. This technology is developed as they want everyone to be able in order to explore knitting’s potential.
Until now, there are many similar tools are available which are industrial knitting machine which cost upwards of $50,000 as well as takes more time and space as well as require a technician in order to run.
