DESIGN Plus ™ Jacquard is a CAD/CAM software system for automation of the process of design in textile companies with jacquard looms. Top Bulgarian jacquard designers participated in its development. Russian academicians from the Central Research Institute for Complex Automation in Light Industry were also involved.

DESIGN Plus ™ Jacquard provides an opportunity for the development of jacquard projects and operation of jacquard looms. In addition the software allows for a check-up of all parameters before production is released. Basic computer skills are enough for any designer to operate the software since it completely follows manual operations but in greater speed. Human mistakes are out of the question and all labour-consuming and boring manual operations are discarded.

The system allows for the development of models for one-layer weave structures, multi-layer weave structures, one-layer jacquard projects, multi-layer jacquard projects, lanced jacquard projects, operation of various electronic equipment producing for example perforated cards, etc.

The system gives an opportunity for the production of all kinds of jacquard textures – basic jacquard, towelling fabrics, jacquard carpets and other flooring, tags and labels of jacquard, jacquard tapestry, etc.

Any picture or drawing can be scanned through DESIGN Plus ™ Jacquard and turned into a computerized model meeting all requirements for a high quality product. One of the biggest advantages of the system is its ability to visualize the pictures and the weaves reflecting the actual density of the threats and hence achieving a most realistic image of the final product without sparing a threat.

Some main features of DESIGN Plus ™ Jacquard
