Abstract

An alternative to tailoring or moulding of two-dimensional fabrics is the relocation of shaping into the weaving machine. Modified weaving processes and machines are able to weave seamless 3D shell geometries. Among the earliest attempts at weaving 3D shells, corsets, hats and tire cord reinforcements had been developed by the end of the nineteenth century.
