Aeronaut automation has introduced Aeroawnings which is a companion stand alone program that allows the rapid design of awning skins.
Scallop depths and spacing are matched to the pattern repeat of the selected fabric. Users can enter and save their own standard fabrics, scallop styles and pattern repeats for later use.
The width of scallops along join seams can be altered to allow already wide sewn blinds to be finish cut on the plotter with all the scallops at the right spot on the pattern.
A marker is positioned at the base of a scallop to allow the pattern to be matched in the plotting software where patterns snap to striped grid lines in the fabric queue.
Both programs are being used by many blind makers, and can be customised by the user, or by Aeronaut to suit a manufacturer’s scallop styles, fabric and design preferences.
