The idea of transforming handcraft weaving into a digital realm is really interesting. However, when it comes to the grasshopper part, it is hard to just imagine that in mind. More thought will come after I get to try this in grasshopper.
Note from reading:
Transferring a material system into digital parametric realm.
- Shedding: Rising of a group of warps to create shed and the weft is passed with Shuttle. Yarns are hung by Heddles connected to Harnesses that move up and down and make shed repeatedly.
- Picking: Single crossing of the shuttle, laying down a layer of weft.
- Battening: Another frame called Reed. it tightens the weft into the edge of woven and unwoven warps. The line between woven and the rest of warps called Fell.
