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.
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.
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.
