Los Angeles - Fabdesigns, the California-based knitted textile research and innovation centre, is holding a series of new educational seminars aimed at supporting the growth of 3D knitting trends.

Connie Huffa, president and textile engineer at Fabdesigns, said that the events would cover "the how, the why, the costs, the tricks & best practice tips' of this increasingly influential knitting technique".

"All have a big impact on not only the look and content of your products, but also the ROI," she said. "Designing and creating 3D knit products has never been more popular. But many designers, engineers, brands, and companies have no idea where to start. Are you an apparel designer with so many great ideas for sustainability, but you’re not sure if the machines can make any of them?

You want to buy machines to on-shore your products, but you don’t know which one?"

The ‘Learning with Leaders’ Education Program, will have four different tracks under the headings of Technology, Materials, Stitches and Design.

"We’ve spent decades developing cutting edge 3D knitted products for major companies, re-imagining the machinery, innovating parts and materials, and teaching these new technologies to major brands, individuals and engineers around the world," Huffa added. "Chances are you're wearing, driving, sitting on, or playing with something that we've touched."

The classes are aimed at the entire knit supply chain including students of apparel design, textile instructors and professors, designers, knitters and factory personnel as well as new knitting machine owners.

There are also options for apparel manufacturers, apparel & footwear brands, industrial designers and those involved in the 3D print (additive manufacturing) sector, as well as anyone who wants to know more about sustainable manufacturing.
