World's first 3D-printed sewing machine

Gaze in wonder.

I happened on this wonderful creation on the Prepared, where Lee Wilkins wrote:

Whenever I show someone how to use a sewing machine, I share this gif that beautifully illustrates the interaction between the needle and bobbin.

I love the sewing machine mechanism, especially as explained by this episode of The Secret Life Of Machines as a human-powered sewing machine.

It's so hypnotic to see the bobbin mechanism work properly, but also no surprise when it doesn't, which is why I’m so impressed by this 3D printed sewing machine that has all the mechanical elements in clear view, including a uniquely-shaped bobbin.

I also like this DIY embroidery machine, which is mounted on a 3D printed gantry system.
