are created by the separate Yarn
Designer program and are added to a yarn palette
on screen which can hold up to 200 yarns for each design. Yarns can
be changed, added to, and removed from the palette at any time
and Weft (Fill) Patterns
creation of warp/weft colour patterns has always been a priority
for ScotWeave and with ergonomics in mind a number of quick and
easy pattern input methods (using the mouse and/or the keyboard)
have been devised. We use real yarn information and can calculate
cost per metre squared and fibre composition as the design
Designer allows you to work with the draft/draw and peg/chain plan
or the composite weave structures and automatically generates the
draft and pegging. A library of over 700 weaves is provided
free with the system. You can, of course, add to this library and
save your own weaves, drafts and peg plans. Fancy weave types can
also be created (e.g. double
dents and cramming, extra warp and weft figuring). Automatic float
checking and breaking can be applied to a weave.
weaves using up to 40 shafts, or limit the available shafts
to match production facilities.
A range of tools are available to help you quickly generate new
design ideas. Colourway blankets can be quickly generated
from an existing design idea. Kaleidoscope and Pattern
Generator can be used to create new pattern ideas automatically.
Patterns and pattern blocks can be resized by percentage or to a
specific size (inches or cms).
