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

Artwork images are created and scaled for jacquard design using ScotWeave Artwork Designer. Images can be created freehand, scanned in and edited, or imported from virtually any other image creation software, including Photoshop. Independent X-Y scaling automatically compensates for different warp and weft fabric settings and allows the image to edited in correct proportions. Work in repeat, work across the repeat joins. Clean to Grid tool allows the colours within the image to be the exact size of a loop weave, resulting in no back weave joins.

Build Towel
The Build Towel feature allows you to set the towel dimensions and create a template for the towel structure consisting of different areas for border/header, and towel body. You can then apply individual artwork elements to each part of the towel template. This provides greater flexibility in the mixing and reusing of borders/headers and looped artwork areas to maximise the number of designs you can create, making it easy to create a large coordinated range of towel designs using only a few common artwork components.Show Me

Advanced Loom Control Options
Loom control parameters (e.g. pile height, weft density, weaving speed etc.) can be set for each section of the towel design, since these will be different for the loop and border sections in the towel. A simple click of the mouse on a section will open the Section Data window for that section and allow you to input meaningful values Show Me These values are then sent directly to the loom disk and converted to the appropriate data for a particular terry loom.

Yarn Colours
Yarns 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 added or removed from the palette at any time.

Warp and Weft (Fill) Patterns
Fast and easy creation of warp/weft patterns has always been a priority for ScotWeave and with ergonomics in mind a number of quick and easy pattern input methods have been devised. Full copy/fill/mirror options are available. It is also possible to load warp/weft patterns from one design onto the screen as the starting point for a new design. Default patterns can be applied automatically to correspond with your pile/ground sequence.
