The WeaveGeo® module
The WeaveGeo® module can be used to design and generate 3D models of regular woven structures, including textiles, carbon fiber reinforced plastics and wire meshes within minutes.
Material properties can then be simulated using one of the GeoDict modules for Digital Material Analysis and design parameters can be optimized based on the results, often within a few days.
WeaveGeo® supports both mono- and multifilament yarns, including ropes and random fiber bundles. Mutual deformation of weft- and wrap-yarns can be controlled by assigning a stiffness to materials.
WeaveGeo® is a registered trademark of Math2Market® GmbH.
WeavGeo® contains several sub-modules for designing different types of weaves. For the most common types of weave-patterns, simplified user interfaces are provided which allow for the rapid design of these types of structures. These include Plain-, Twill- and Satin-Weaves.
More complex (including multi-layer) designs can be realized using the FreeWeave sub-moduls, which allows you to enter custom bindings using weave diagrams. Several pre-defined settings are included which highlight the capabilities of WeaveGeo® and can be used as a starting point for your own designs.

Depending on the application area, material properties of structures generated with WeaveGeo® can be analyzed using one of the GeoDict modules for Digital Material Analysis, e.g. FlowDict for CFD, FilterDict for filtration efficiency/capacity, ElastoDict for effective elasticity or ConductoDict for thermal/electrical conductivity.
