ProLace Embroidery Design and Punching System
With the new ProLace a new era begins in your company: Drawing and Punching
with CAD-technology. You will draw and punch much quicker, more precisely
and creatively. And ... you'll enjoy it!
ProLace contains the complete command set of ProArt. ProLace designs,
draws, modifies, memorizes , plots, enlarges, reduces, copies, removes,
rolls, reflects and summarizes by pressing a key. ProLace scans even your
cole-drafts into the computer system in next time and elaborates perfect
sketches and technical embroidery drawings and finally the punched design
in various formats.
and modern user interface
ProLace is based on the user-friendly and reliable WindowsXP multitasking
operating system. It allows you to run several programs simultaneously in
different windows. In this way it is no longer necessary to close e.g. the
scanning software before you run ProLace. You can keep it in the background
to make immediately modifications, if you are not satisfied with the scanned
Also plotting runs in the background. The plotter is still
working and you can just continue designing in ProLace.
even handmade sketches and samples
The new high resolution scanners accept and
convert to ProLace your rough hand-made sketches as well as samples of
lace. The result is always optimal. You get a sharp and perfect picture
on your screen.
the first go it generates perfect outlines
The program to take over the outlines will
fascinate you especially when drawing curves. You only have to place the
mouse on the beginning of the curve to be drawn. When moving the mouse,
the system creates a flexible arc. You can move and stretch the arc dynamically,
till it fits to the outline. Then you give the final "OK". No
further corrections will be necessary. No wasted time for corrections.
By means of programs, which were specially
developed for the embroidery designer, it is an easy job to produce technical
embroidery drafts with or without all stitches.
Symbols and Parametric Embroidery Macros
Numerous patterns can be easily filled in
areas. The boundary of the area will be detected automatically by the
system. If you want to produce a sketch, it is also possible to fill areas
You can easily build up a library with frequently used symbols like flowers,
paddles, stars, etc. After you have designed a new symbol, you can pick
it up from an icon menu.
Symbols are very useful for the designer, but not flexible. For each single
variant of a flower you have to design a new symbol. This can result in
a huge muddled symbol library. Thanks to our new Parametric Embroidery
Macros you can create thousands of variants of flowers and festons. You
specify a few parameters like number of paddles, inside radius, outside
radius, distance between paddles, paddle type, etc. and the system constructs
the flower for you including all stitches.
can calculate the number of stitches of a design, and
you can switch between design- and punch-view
On use of ProLace's powerful automatic functions, also real stitches are
inserted in the design. Due to this feature, you can switch between a
design- and a punch-view. The design-view can contain all stitches or
only the inclination lines.
You have another advantage out of this feature. The system can calculate
the correct amount of stitches before the design is punched!
want to modify embroidery objects?
No problem with ProLace!
To change e.g. the density of an embroidery
object select the object and change the density parameter in the dialog-box.
The system finally redesigns the object with the new density.
If you change the shape of a blattstitch you can correct the stitches
with a simple update command.
You are not satisfied with the direction of the stitches of a geflect
or of a blattstitch? In this case first correct the direction or/and the
position of the red inclination line (see in the upper design) and then
perform an update. The stitches will immediately be corrected.
punching on ProArt designs
The puncher can directly take advantage of embroidery
elements, which were designed with ProArt or with ProLace. He defines
where to go in and where to come out, performs necessary corrections,
adds underlayers and machine functions and saves the punched design in
the desired format.
fits your requirements
With ProLace there is no need to reorganize
your Design- and Punching Department. Depending on your requirements you
can use the system in different ways:
You can also punch directly on the scanned image.
||The designer can produce
a technical embroidery design, plot it 3:1 or 6:1 and punch the design
with any other Punching System.
The designer can produce a technical embroidery design, save
it as DXF, BMP or WMF file and punch it on a Punching System, which
is capable to read one of these formats.
||The designer produces a
technical embroidery design with ProArt or ProLace and passes the
design to a puncher, who is working with ProLace. The puncher now
defines the path and adds underlayers and machine commands.
||The designer only traces
the sketch. The puncher defines the path, applies embroidery effects
to the areas and polylines and adds underlayers and machine commands.
||You can also punch directly
on the scanned image.
with ProArt are possible
ProArt is our Embroidery Design System. ProArt designs with all effects
can directly be used by ProLace. To fit perfectly your requirements various
system configurations with ProArt are possible. Interesting discounts will
be offered if you buy ProArt and ProLace systems in one package.
ProLace can communicate with you in English, German, Italian and Chinese.
