A finished item produced by a weaving process.
A finished item constructed as a weavement,
but produced by some other process,
such as 3D-printing.
In certain cases items that are the product of
unique ‘traditional’ equipment and processes
-and even ‘hands-on’ labor-
can ALSO be produced by 3D printing.
3D-printing can inevitably and purposefully
add new attributes to these products,
to such an extent that they can
ONLY be produced by 3D-printing.
DESCRIPTION OF STRUCTURE
The illustration below shows a 3D-weavement,
composed of blue-, red-, green- constituent elements.
See also the (3) videos featuring the weavement.
After viewing the (3) videos,
one can note that the 3D-weavement can be seen as consisting of:
1.) a stack of red/green 2D-weavements stitched together by blue elements,
2.) a stack of blue/green 2D-weavements stitched together by red elements,
3.) a stack of blue/red 2D-weavements stitched together by green elements.
The elements stitching these stacks of 2D-weavements together do so by
wending thru the successive members of the stack in some appropiate manner,
therefore, as a group, they can be called the ‘Wendage’.
From the foregoing
a 3D-weavement can be defined as follows:
A 3D-weavement is so constituted that
along each of (3) mutually perpendicular directions
a unique stack of 2D-weavements and associated wendage
can be seen.
