Fiber tutorial up at Soft Robotics Toolkit

Tutorial on installing fibers in 3D printed parts using an embroidery machine

Our tutorial is up at the Soft Robotics Toolkit website. It covers how to use an embroidery machine to add a patterned fiber layer to a 3D print, a circuit board, or a thin laser-cut part. It also describes how to use a 3D printed template for installing fibers that are too thick for the embroidery machine to handle.┬áThere’s a link to the Inkscape plugin for aligning patterns, plus some nifty alignment pegs Brian Wagner invented if you would rather laser-cut your template than do a large-area 3D print.
