The material was a polyester mesh-like fabric that stretched in one direction, but not much. Operating the pen takes some practice and the temperature of filament is probably too low to make it stick to the fabric well

The printer used: Creality Ender-3 Pro
The material was a polyester mesh-like fabric that stretched in one direction, but not much, so I couldn't really see the fabroc deforming in an intended way
The material was a mesh fabric fabric that stretched, this time in two directions, but once again not enough so I couldn't really see the fabric deforming in an intended way
The fabric was a very stretchy lycra, that finally showed the deformations. I modified the design to make the curves thicker and higher. There is a gradation of height in the spikes from the top to bottom.
For the purpose of this assignement I used FilaFlex flexible filament, that would bend slightly to the fabric tension unlike the usual PLA or ABS. It requires some adjustments in order to print successfully:
- slightly higher extruder temperature (around 10 degrees), so here it was 220'
- the retraction option should be turned off
- the z offset should be set according to the fabric thickness
