To start this project we met up with Peter Dieleman (4D Expert) to learn a little more about this area. He showed us movies of his and others work. The work of Skylar Tibbits was particularly interesting.

We them came up with a few initial goals which we wanted to achieve over the first couple of weeks.
- Find the best fabric(s) to print on.
- Discover the best print settings.
- Explore the possibility of a relation between the stretch of the fabric and the angle created by the tension.
Our first meeting with Peter finished with arranging a visit to his and Scott Russell Waitukaitis’ lab at the FOM institute AMOLF, located in Amsterdam Science Park.
