Broidery CAD software has been widely used in the sewing pattern design by the broidery industry. All the Broidery CAD software is installed onto the computer of the swing machine company that offers the designing tool solely for the sewing pattern designer. The users of the swing machine are rejected by using the pattern design software due to no connection between the sewing machine and the computer loaded with the broidery CAD software. The swing machine users can not obtain the instant response from the broidery company. In this study, we propose an integrating real-time sewing path designing system that based on the concept of the cloud computing to allow different sewing machine users with different operating system to be able to connect to the company server to either retrieve the sewing path data or upload the new swing image or pattern by the Internet communication. The proposed system includes an application server that will perform the calculation function of converting the user desired sewing pattern into the sewing path and the stitch coordinates that can be fed into the sewing machine. The proposed system will change the conventional single-directional way of using the sewing pattern design process. By the cloud computing server, multiple users can share the sewing path data and modify the existing sewing path in the real-time manner. This provides a new way to solve the problem with no communication between designer and user and offer a creative way to enhance the functionality of the broidery machine.
