Computer Controlled 3D Braiding Machine

To be able to consistently and reliably produce 3D braided structures, part of my thesis work was to continue the work of a previous student and design a machine capable of producing 3D braids. This machine utilized a computer as the brain of the system, and a micro-controller as the stepper controller.
