Developing the sample layout using conductive thread and chain stitch.

TPU on nylon mesh

TPU on nylon mesh

Exploring TPU on nylon open mesh. Unfortunately the heat required for the filament would burn the mesh periodically ☹️.

TPU on mesh

TPU on mesh

TPU filament produces a slight shine resulting in a plastic aesthetic.

TPE on mesh

TPE on mesh

Testing on fabric for a softer feel. Print at 2mm on mesh is more malleable and closer to a traditional lingerie feel.

TPE print w/out fabric
