DefeXtiles is a rapid and low-cost technique to produce realistic high-fidelity textiles on 3D printers. In this work, the researchers demonstrate that under-extrusion defects can be finely controlled to quickly print thin flexible textiles into complex 3D shapes. This approach enables a myriad of applications, including printing full sized garments, deformable tangible interfaces, and ultra-tough shuttlecocks.
