Thread diagrams with SVG

Some research about drawing thread diagrams of bobbin lace with InkScape (an SVG editor) lead to a document about  templates, mathematical braid words and thread diagram creation in a semi-automated way.

Much of the theory is put into practice in the new application at DiBL. It can make variations of thread diagrams and pair diagrams. But nothing of the braid words (page 6-7) is implemented yet nor another way to auto (re)connect stitches. I would appreciate reviews. Most of all I would like to hear how well or bad the templates on the project home page behave with other (read commercial) SVG editors such as CorelDraw and Adobe Illustrattor.

  1. Ooh, I hadn’t discovered the IOLI forum! I don’t know much about designing lace, so I can’t comment helpfully, but I am intrigued by the ideas of computerized design.
