The Art of Fabric Weaving

The Art of Fabric Weaving


3D Fabric Simulation

Simulation needs to be as true as possible. And what could be more true than the actual machine file that the fabric would be woven from?

Years ago, EAT (as one of the first CAD/CAM suppliers) had based their simulation program on a full JC file. JC files contain all information for the control of jacquard weaving loom combinations. The JC formats are better known under the name of the machine manufacturers, such as Stäubli, Bonas, Grosse, Schleicher etc. The simulation module mirrors the entire complex process of weaving.

However, EAT has taken Fabric Simulation one decisive step further by adding the third dimension. Go to the Catalogues to see what we are talking about.

The Art of Fabric – Fabric Simulation in a 3-dimensional environment with true light effects

• Visual Properties of the Yarn
• Light and Shadow on the Yarn
• Light and Shadow of the Pleats and Creases
• Fabric Density and Transparencies
• Front and Back of the Fabric
• Perspective in the 3-dimensional Environment

3D Textile Simulation

This software enables the user to perfectly display the front side of damask, carpet, velours, plush, terry or knitware. This way of working especially suits the designer since the simulation is derived from a bitmap file and therefore does not need a machine file to operate the display.

3D Photo Simulation

With 3D Photo Simulation, results from the modules
• 3D Fabric Simulation
• 3D Textile Simulation
• 3D Knitting Simulation
is calculated in high-resolution into defined areas of a preloaded photo file.

The system calculates light and shadow of the photo and merges it 3-dimensionally with the structure and sheen effects of the fabric pasted. The result creates a never before seen reality in the eyes of the viewer.
