Making Quick Structure Tests for a TC2

This video walks you through a simple setup for quickly producing TC2 files that sample various drafts and stitches.

AdaCAD Mixer Introduction

This video introduces the general structure of the AdaCAD Mixing tool focusing largely on drawing, inks, and actions

Making Woven Electrodes

This video shares more information on how we generated drafts to test the effectiveness of different structures for weaving dry electrodes, based on the research by [Katya Arquilla](https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=hhbNjTcAAAAJ&hl=en). In Katya's...

Quickly Create 2-Pic Structures

2 pic structures create really interesting visual and tactile textures. When you throw resistive yarns at each pic, many of them make good resistive force sensors as well. This video...

Getting Started

This video will walk you through how to start your very first draft with AdaCAD. It also shows you how AdaCAD generates you a random draft to start based on...

How to Save Files

This video describes how to lead, print, and save your design files

Creating and Using Patterns

This video shows how to use the patterns window to fill regions and to create your own patterns from regions you selected on the drawdown.

Adding Systems and Materials

This video tells you about how describe the materials of your weave, how to work with warp and weft systems, and how to apply patterns to your warps and wefts...

Design Tools

This video will walk you through the different design tools that AdaCAD offers.

View Options

This video describes how to switch between and what is shown in yarn, draft, and circuit view. Give insight into showing and hiding weft and warp systems.

How to Weave a Press Button

This video will walk you through how to start your very first draft with AdaCAD. It also shows you how AdaCAD generates you a random draft to start based on...

Drafting a Force Sensor

This video walks viewers through the process of integrating conductive materials to a waffle weave in order to make a soft force sensitive resistor. This is the technique that was...
