TexMind Braider

TexMind Braider is an intuitive CAD-Software for colour and structural design of standard tubular and flat braids.The user defines the number of the yarns, the braiding type and the dimension of the braid.

TexMind Braider Standard generates a 3-D-View of the braided structure, where the user can change the colours of the yarns. The configuration of the braid producing machine with the carrier arrangement and the colour arrangement is saved in form of a report. The export of the 3-D-View can be made as a picture with high resolution or in formats for 3-D printing or FEM- und CFD-calculations. This speeds up the development of the braided structures, in the both the areas for products with special requirements – medical textiles, ropes, overbraids as braids with decorative function -shoe laces and decorative cords.

TexMind Braider Multifilament generates a 3-D-View of the braided structure, where the all filaments in the multifilament yarns are drawn. These can be with and without twist.
