The main objective of this paper is to develop a computer simulative model for designing textile scaffolds. Embroidery structure can be defined as a framework of yarns that are connected by stiff knots whose deformation will depend on the distribution of knots and on the stiffness of the yarn. Embroidery allows to build a highly architectured 3D structure to design pore patterns and other elements. The basic concept and some preliminary simulation results will be presented.
