to the all-new ScotWeave products highlighted on our Home

October 2003 -
New Drape 3D
feature to drape the current fabric on a real 3D wireframe model.

3D feature which shows the weave structure as a real
3D model. Check this link to see how you might improve
your 3D graphics performance.
Adjustments have been made to the calculations used for the automatic
fabric costing feature of the program (which shows the fabric
cost as you create a design).
Improved import/export options make it easier to import weave
data across all programs (e.g. import jacquard weave into dobby,
jacquard base weave into dobby, dobby weave into jacquard and dobby
weave into jacquard base weave).

for improved compatibility with other software.
New Paint Brush interface which includes pen sensitivity
