CADCAM Software for All Woven Textiles Including 3D Woven Composite for Aerospace,Automotive and all Techical sectors

Software development continues at ScotWeave with some powerful new features added for February 2004. Some of these features come directly from suggestions and feedback we received at ITMA 2003.

Jacquard Looms
A major new version of the Jacquard Looms program has just been released. The changes here have been designed to improve the functionality of the program as a standalone loom disk editing system as well as maintaining the support for ScotWeave loom disk creation.

Changes here included easier weave editing, faster weave navigation, improved hook map support, ability to "apply a harness file" to a loom disk for easier identification of loom functions, faster "Undo" operation, revised menus and dialogs for faster operation and additional weave editing tools.

Jacquard Designer
An all-new method for creating a jacquard design automatically has been added to this release. This feature is designed to created realistic "picture jacquards" (similar to photographs) and uses a supplied default yarn palette and library of graduated weaves to create the jacquard design. Called simply PictureJaq this new feature uses 4 warp x 4 weft sequence artwork images.Show Me

New Browse Compatible button in the Get Weaves function which will only display those weaves with the same layer structure and base ends/picks as was selected when the artwork was created.

An alternative method for weave assignment has been provided - you may now click on the colour in the artwork image as well as the colour in the Get Weaves window.

Dobby Designer
The Save Weave option now checks through all existing weave files, looking for the same weave structure before storing. If any identical weave structures are found then the filenames are displayed. This prevents saving duplicate versions of the same weave to file.

Some changes have been made to the automatic Fabric Costing feature. This feature displays the fabric cost per square metre as you create the design and allows you to enter a maximum fabric cost and to warn you if the design exceeds this cost.

Base Weave Designer
The Save Weave option now checks through all existing weave files, looking for the same weave structure before storing. If any identical weave structures are found then the filenames are displayed. This prevents saving duplicate versions of the same weave to file.
