Arahne software updates 2021

Arahne software updates 2021

It’s time to upgrade your Arahne software to the latest version and get all the fancy new features!

In the previous year, we have made significant improvements, bug fixes, and new functions in ArahWeave, ArahPaint6, ArahDrape, and ArahView3D. Due to the requirement from our customers to present their seasonal fabrics online, we also made some significant changes and customizations to the Digital fabric catalog – ArahCatalog.

In this short document (Angleščina, Italijanščina), we are presenting a selection of the new features with an explanation of how to use them.

If you are interested in upgrading the software to the latest version and receiving yearly support, write us to our E-mail: arahne@arahne.si
