Asset exchange / Re: Looking for Durastretch 544 Coyote Brown
« Last post by Sweap on September 24, 2020, 01:14:46 PM »
Did you try contacting Tweave directly? They sell cut yardage at a very reasonable price.

Sure did, unfortunately they don't stock the 544P and require a 500yard minimum order. They do have 520E in coyote, but so do I and it's too little stretch for my intended use.

Workspace, tools, machinery, and manufacturing / Pattern making software

I've been using SEAMLY2D for making patterns.

Pros: open source, very stable, exports in .dxf, .pdf, .eps.
Cons: quite limited functions, can not render end product

What open source soft do you use for designing your products? 8)

Seems hard to find... Any other stretch woven in Coyote Brown, need something like 60-70% stretch in at least one direction.

Materials science / MilSpec Thread
« Last post by Gear Dynamics on September 18, 2020, 05:51:53 PM »
The milspec for bonded nylon thread is A-A-59826, and is usually found as Type II (Bonded), Class A (Regular Finish).

My question is has anyone used Class B (Non-Wick Finish) and/or Type III (Monocord) for sewing gear? Any advantages to either?

Thanks!

Materials science / Re: Why Nylon Over Polyester Webbing?

In the tactical world it is all about fire and loads.

Polyester burns easier then nylon.
Nylon melts, then burns. Polyester melts and burns at the same time.

As far as I know, the big points are abrasion resistance and strength.
