ThreadTone | a halftone representation of an image made of thread

The process of generating an image with thread is an idea of Petros Vrellis. As I've documented here the process is comprised of three steps:

  • Image pre-processing (cropping, resizing, etc.)
  • Algorithm to place threads
  • In my case parsing the result to G-Code for automated fabrication

A set of two example images can be found below. Please refer to my blog for more details.
