Maker 3D prints working loom and publishes instructions

Austrian maker Fraens has built a 3D-printed and functional loom as a project.

In the detailed blog article and in a video, the engineer describes the individual components of the complex machine. These links had to be designed to be both functional and stable in order to withstand the changing loads during the weaving process.

According to Fraens, one of the biggest challenges was the precise lifting and lowering of the longitudinal threads. After several unsuccessful attempts with belt drives, he succeeded in finding a solution using an ingenious camshaft mechanism.

Fraens can download the 3D model files and detailed assembly instructions for 20 euros from the Cult3D platform.
