Don’t even consider knitting an iPhone cozy…let robots do it for you!
Miracles of 3-D Printing
If you can create a 3-D graphic (which isn’t easy…trust me), there are companies that will “print” your 3-D image using various materials.
The cases shown above were made by a 3-D printing company called Shapeways, and they were “printed” so that each strand of yarn in the fabric is separate and it moves independently of the other strands…just like real knitting. I would imagine the sculpted fabric would also add a level of protection to an iPhone as well.
I decided to see if I could make a printable 3-D image and I got pretty far along in the process, but wasn’t quite able to get it in a state that was printable.
I started off with the 2-D JPG image of the Men’s Knitting Retreat graphic.
