TexGen is a geometric textile modelling software package which can be used to create the geometry and mesh for textile composites. It is an open source code licensed under the General Public License developed at the University of Nottingham. More details can be found at the TexGen website. The software here is modified so that it can call SwiftComp to compute the effective properties. Taking advantage of the versatile model generation capability by texgen and constitutive modelling by SwiftComp, TexGen4SC provides a fast and easy way to compute properties of textile composites. However, since TexGen has difficulty to visualization contour plots, one needs to import the SC file to Gmsh4SC for visualizing the local fields. User manual can be found in the supporting documents. If you want a quick start, please watch out TexGen4SC Tutorial Video Series
