Kniterate: A Digital Printing Machine for Knitwear

April 03, 2017

Kniterate is an affordable and compact digital knitting machine for your workshop. It allows you to turn digital designs into knitted garments ready to be worn.

Designed by London-based Gerard Rubio, Kniterate allows the user to take digital designs from Photoshop and turn them into wearable clothing. A 3D printer for knitwear of sorts, the machine was designed for fashion businesses and design schools in need of quick and low cost prototyping. Each unit will cost around $5,000 or less if you get in early via Kickstarter.
