3.2 - Advanced Embroidery Simulator

Like ProView 1 & 2 also ProView 3.1 displays a preview of the ProLace embroidery in a separate window.
ProView 3.1  includes all the ProView features of ProView 1 & 2, but it enables the user to simulate also advanced embroidery effects like Laser / Thermo cut, Cord and Soutache.

ProView supports the designer and the puncher
ProView  is an important companion for the ProArt Designer and the ProLace Puncher. It displays the embroidery already during the design or punching process, so that the user gets an overview of the whole design, independent of the zoom factor, which he is actually using in the ProArt or ProLace editing window.

Displays the effect of Color Change, Needle Change, Repeat Change and Needle Programming
In some complex designs is it very difficult for the puncher to imagine the outcome specially of repeat change and needle pattern. Not so with ProView! ProView directly shows the puncher the effect of color change, repeat change and needle programming.

Enables you to simulate alternate color designs
Alternate needle colors, specially in combination with color change, are hard to imagine for the puncher too. Also in this case ProView can help.

You can define the thread of up to 60 needles
In order to get a photo realistic preview of the embroidery is it possible to define the thread of up to 60 needles.

You specify threads, and not colors for the needles
In ProView 3
you define the thread of each single needle. For a thread you can define the color, the intensity of the shadow and of the highlighted part and the width. In this way a thread can appear glossy like a polyester thread or matt like a cotton thread.

Can display Sequins
Designs with sequins are a big problem for the most viewers on the market. Not so for ProView. It can display also sequins, which exist in your design. The color can be defined, the size and shape are taken over from ProLace.
The Sequin color can be defined for every repeat of the simulation. This allows you to simulate also alternate color Sequin designs.

Can display Metallic yarn, Cord yarn and Soutache
Soutage and cord yarn can be scanned and saved as bitmaps.

You can create a cutting mask and a Laser / Thermo cut mask
A cutting mask specifies the area to cut out the fabric. The area will be displayed in the defined background color. Masks can also be used to create large holes in the fabric.
Via a second mask you can define the Laser / Thermo cut area. The area will be displayed as second fabric.

Also bitmaps can be used to display two fabrics
For the background you can define a solid color, but also bitmaps can be used as background. ProView 3 comes already with a number of backgrounds like tuell, linen, cotton, but can also scan your own fabrics and use them as background.

Compensates the thread pull
Due to the thread pull embroidery objects like edges and blattstitches appear smaller in reality than on the punched design. ProView considers this fact and allows you to define how much the thread pull is compensated.

Displays borer sections correctly
Also bored areas are displayed correctly. The bored are is filled with the mask color.

Definable quality of the resulting image
In order to optimize ProView for your needs is it possible to specify the image resolution. Values between 72dpi and 300dpi are possible. You can also choose between the 3 display modes Draft, Normal and 3D.
The Draft mode  is used during punching. It is the fastest mode, but no background and no thread width are displayed.
In the Normal mode you can produce images like in ProView 1 with thread width, solid background and solid thread.
The best results can be achieved in the 3D mode, which enables you to generate a photo realistic image. Also bitmap backgrounds are supported in this mode.

Supports systems with two monitors
In case of computer systems with two monitors, one monitor can be used to display the ProLace screen and one monitor can be used for the ProView window. This can spare valuable space on the ProLace screen and give you an even better overview due to a bigger preview window.
