  • Uses Yarn Designer for solid, twist, mixture and fancy yarns and Pantone® colour
  • Uses Artwork Designer for artwork scanning and editing
  • Fast easy creation of warp and weft (fill) patterns
  • Easy input of weave - separate windows for face, back etc
  • Weave library system for ease of weave selection
  • Automatically update jacquard weave if changes made to artwork
  • Any changes to design are viewed on screen in real-time
  • Full float check and break with "smart" float breaking facility
  • View jacquard weave as lifts, yarn colours, or artwork
  • Kaleidoscope & Pattern Generator for automatic pattern creation
  • Change footing of weave structures and see results instantly
  • Supports extra weft figuring and variable weft densities


  • Weave 3D to view the fabric structure as a true 3D image
  • Drape 3D to drape the fabric onto a true 3D model
  • Auto-drape to view the fabric in one of several drape scenes
  • Fabric finishing simulations to enhance simulation
  • Export design or weave as standard image file (TIFF, BMP)
  • Import weave from standard image files (TIFF, BMP etc.)
  • Uses Jacquard Looms program for output to electronic jacquards
