Attaching rigid electronics on flexible textiles?

How did Smart³D succeed in squaring the circle?

Centexbel-VKC and the smart³D project partners are developing a novel method based on low-pressure molding to secure electronics, wires, and cables in a secure and watertight manner onto textiles.

To this end, Smart³D designed and printed molds by means of additive manufacturing techniques. We used specific grades of hotmelt resins or 2K polyurethanes to encapsulate or pot the electronics.
