ThreadPlotter

A toolkit for the design and fabrication of delicate punch needle embroidery using X-Y plotters_

What?

ThreadPlotter is a toolkit that supports the designing, editing, and printing of images as punch needle embroidery using an X-Y plotter. It is a supplementary material for the paper:

"Plotting with Thread: Fabricating Delicate Punch Needle Embroidery with X-Y Plotters" Shiqing He, Eytan Adar, to appear, DIS'20, Honorable Mention Award

The following video briefly introduces the motivation for building this tool and the capability of the ThreadPlotter.

If you are interested in using this toolkit, please consider citing our paper:Plotting with Thread: Fabricating Delicate Punch Needle Embroidery with X-Y Plotters

How?

To convert your X-Y plotter into a punch needle fabricator, we will follow the following steps:

  1. Ensure that your plotter is suitable for the task. (tutorial 1)
  2. Acquire or create several physical components such as needle, fabric, and frame. (tutorial 2)
  3. Design a punch needle pattern.
    1. tutorial 3: pattern making overview
    2. tutorial 4: advanced examples #in progress

We highly recommend that you review our paper before getting started. When you are ready, click on each of the links above.

Show us! Tell us! Ask us! Credit us!

We are excited to see what you can create with this fabrication technique. The toolkit is developed and tested by Licia (on her plotter called "Kitty"). If you have questions about the toolkit, feel free to open up an issue in our github page.

If you created something and want to share it with us, please use the tag #plotterembroidery on SNS.
