The Thread Controller 2 (TC2) is a Digital Jacquard loom manufactured by Digital Weaving Norway. The TC2 loom allows the creator to control every thread independently. It allows the user to make a quality cloth with the desired fibers, weave structures, warp and weft densities and colors. Designers may use the loom to make make a sequence of samples varying for example the scale of the design, weave structures, colorways or create photorealistic images. With the TC2 loom, it is possible to evaluate the design visually as well as the actual hand or the feel of the fabric. Artist from all disciplines may use the loom for creating special commissions. The loom is computer-controlled and manually-operated because it is designed to be operated by the creator, designer, or weaver.
