DigiBunai : Seamless Design Tool Integration
The designers use multiple tools to create a digital fabric, which is then used to produce the woven textile. In the stages of producing a handloom digital fabric, which has been depicted below, typically the process starts with the hand-drawn sketches of the designers. These hand-drawn sketches are then scanned and imported into the many available CAD tools to produce a raster image output (solid design).
Along with the hand-drawn sketches, there are other forms of artwork the designers get influenced by and some of them being the scanned pictures, digital pictures, etc. Some of the prominent CAD tools in the marketplace (a mix of opensource and licensed) are :
- Arahne paint
- Nedgraphics Texcelle
- Corel Draw
- Adobe Illustrator
- Microsoft Paint
- Apart from the above, there are many CAD software in the opensource domain. Given this, DigiBunai provides a unique tool integration feature to any CAD software
- of users choice and can be invoked from within the DigiBunai suite.
