Steel Cardoza's research automates the custom wedding veil manufacturing process by utilizing additive manufacturing techniques with a novel adhesive-surface combination. Tulle, the nylon mesh used in wedding veils, is too delicate a material for conventional high temperature 'bedazzling' techniques, requiring individual crystals to be placed by hand until now. Project sponsor is Dr. Taub's daughter Ariel Taub who operates her own custom wedding veil company.
