all about tension structures
MPanel Shade Designer - Itís made for the shade!

Developed specifically for the shade sail industry, who use HDPE knitted fabric, this stand-alone (no CAD system required!) application runs on Microsoft Windows based computers. MPanel Shade Designer provides a step-by-step wizard interface that virtually walks the user through the process of creating a three-dimensional model and an accurate flat fabric pattern of a shade sail structure.

Utilizing the same powerful tools found in our popular MPanel design and pattering software, MPanel Shade Designer features options for including seam allowance and material compensation (to plan for the stretch in the material) as well as a fully dimensioned pattern in a printable, production ready report, all with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Support for the user to create and save custom databases of different shade cloth materials and various corner hardware & connection methods are also included. A fully-featured evaluation version is available for download upon request.
