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

Software development continues at ScotWeave with the following list being just a brief selection of new features recently added to the software.

Yarn Designer
In direct response to customer feedback, it is now possible to apply a different yarn cost to each yarn in a yarn file as an alternative to one cost for the entire yarn file. This allows more accurate fabric cost calculations and is particularly relevant for fancy yarns.

Colour library management has been improved with options to print lists of PCR values in a file and a new option to find yarns with empty PCR values automatically.

Dobby Designer
Variable weft density has been added to the Dobby Designer program and allows weft density sequences to be entered in the weave window.Show Me

The F6 function key can now be used to select a yarn directly from the warp or weft pattern.

The File - Recent Files option now opens a visual browse window of recent designs.

A new weave option allows the weave structure to be rotated by 90, 180 or 270 degrees.

Jacquard Designer
The automatic jacquard weave creation tool PicJaq has been implemented to all weave types. This option will automatically create a "picture jacquard" from an artwork image such that the jacquard fabric looks as much as possible like the original artwork image. Show Me

A new option under Weave - Edge Clean has been added to clean up edges where weaves meet.

The Color Picker window (used to create a new yarn shade) now has an option to Search for an existing yarn which will closely match the newly created color. This avoids duplication of yarn shades.

Both Jacquard Designer and Base Weave Designer now have a compatibility mode in which weave marks are shown as red/white squares in common with other CAD software.

Jacquard Looms
This program has undergone a major rewrite with the intention of making it the most versatile and easy to use jacquard loom disk creation and management tool available. Recent additions to this program have increased the capacity to accommodate the largest available looms and rewriting of the hook mapping feature for ease of use. From loom disk conversion to major editing work in all of the major loom disk formats, the Jacquard Looms program is becoming an indispensable tool.

Dual Monitor Support
ScotWeave now supports dual monitor operation under Microsoft Windows XP. You will need a graphics card with two output connectors (e.g. a DVI output and standard analogue outpu) such as the ATI Radeon 9800 Pro. Setup is very simple and will allow you to view large designs across the two monitors as required.Show Me
