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

ScotWeave Velvet Jacquard Designer provides a unique CADCAM package for face to face velvet jacquard weaving. From artwork design, through weave selection and colouring, to production on electronic jacquard looms.

Artwork images are created and scaled for velvet 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. You can work in repeat and work across the repeat joins.

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 changed, added to , and removed from the palette at any time. Show Me

Warp Pile and Ground Weft Patterns
Fast 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.

As well as the usual range of copy/fill/mirror etc., tools ScotWeave allows patterns to be entered using the "bracket" notation. You can also change a pattern size by entering a percentage value for the new pattern. Threads can be inserted, removed from, or added to the end of a pattern at any time. It is also possible to load a the warp/weft patterns from one design onto the screen as the starting point for a new design.
