Circular Knitic demonstrates a different line of our works, which lays in open source design and digital fabrication. To be more precise, Circular Knitic is an another example of our aims to integrate textile manufacturing into the contemporary makers' culture. We call it soft digital fabrication.We have been working with knitting and knitting machines since 2012. That time we already had a vision about a 'reprap' knitting machine. And finally we have achieved it or at least got the idea rolling: Circular Knitic is completely open source machine that is produced by using digital fabrication tools, and thus, allows to be replicated by everyone, who has access to a 3d printing and laser cutting. Also we really hope that the community will pick up our work and develop further. We are very excited to see how this project will evolve.Circular Knitic is an open hardware project. By using digital fabrication and makers' tools, like 3D printing, laser cutting, makerbeam, and Arduino, we have designed an automated and replicable circular knitting machine.
