Drape - 3D Fabric Visualisation
CADCAM Software for All Woven Textiles Including 3D Woven Composite for Aerospace,Automotive and all Techical sectors
Drape Images
The drape images (onto which fabrics are draped) can be imported into ScotWeave Drape using all of the standard image file formats (e.g. TIFF, BMP, PCX, JPeG etc.). Photographic artwork can be scanned in using Artwork Designer then imported into Drape.

Drape Grids
A draping contour grid must be superimposed upon a drape image before it can be used for draping. This is done visually using simple point and drag operations. There is an absolute minimum of numerical information required to setup a drape grid which makes the process quick and easy to understand.Show Me

Drape Regions
Drape regions are separate parts of a drape image into which you can apply different drape fabrics or you can apply different alignments or lighting effects. For example, on an image of a jacket you might identify the sleeves and lapels as different drape regions to the main body of the jacket. Regions may also be setup as solid colour regions (whose colour you can vary as required) or as feature regions which are never changed by the drape process (e.g. buttons).

Drape Fabric Images
Drape fabric images can be imported directly from ScotWeave Dobby or Jacquard Designer files or can be imported as standard image files (e.g. TIFF, BMP, PCX, JPeG etc.). Drape fabrics are added to a "drape library" from which they can be selected visually as they are required.

Fabrics can be aligned differently in drape regions by simply dragging them within the region. The image is re-draped in real-time as you drag the fabric. You can also scale the fabrics differently in different regions. Lighting effects can be applied to each drape region as required.
