Computer Aided Design (Cad) For Fashion

  1. 1. Computer Aided Design (CAD) for fashion Design By Roxana Evans
  2. 2. How is CAD Used? <ul><li>The use of computers to make design process easier. </li></ul><ul><li>Specialized CAD can be used for architecture, woven fabrics, and engineering. </li></ul><ul><li>Allows design to be seen in three dimensions. </li></ul><ul><li>Designer is able to use computer to develop and test product ideas using less work and less errors. </li></ul>
  3. 3. CAD in the Fashion Industry <ul><li>Also called “Computer-Assisted or “Computer-Aided drafting” </li></ul><ul><li>It is used typically to assist in the design process. </li></ul><ul><li>CAD allows design to be even more detailed making it easier to ensure that designs are flowing together in a collection. </li></ul>
  4. 4. What is it Used for? <ul><li>Lets the fashion designer view different designs, colors, and different patterns on different models. </li></ul><ul><li>Makes design process more sophisticated and can be used in place of regular designing methods such as drawing. </li></ul><ul><li>Can be used to see a design, fabric, and color all at once before producing the product. </li></ul>
  5. 5. How is it important? <ul><li>More schools are requiring design students to learn how to use it. </li></ul><ul><li>Used in more programs for design schools and colleges. </li></ul><ul><li>Makes the design process quicker allowing the designer to make changes to an idea. </li></ul>
  6. 6. CAD Program <ul><li>Courses: Mathematics and computer aided software at general level. </li></ul><ul><li>Courses become more advanced with degree of design such as architecture for example. </li></ul><ul><li>Can lead to CAD professions. (Computer Aided Engineering and Computer Aided Manufacturing. </li></ul>
  7. 7. CAD Program Cont’d <ul><li>Integrates fiber, fabric, pattern making construction techniques with use of computers, and software. </li></ul><ul><li>Learning how to use CAD can be beneficial to a fashion designer or even for someone who wants to pursue a CAD profession. Is programmable and able to be optimized. </li></ul><ul><li>A degree in CAD can also lead to a job in the textile industry. </li></ul>
  8. 8. CAD in the Design Process <ul><li>Overall CAD saves the designer time during the design process. </li></ul><ul><li>Allows designers to develop even newer design ideas. Shows the components in every design. </li></ul><ul><li>Shows prototype and makes it easier for the designer to make a change before producing the new design. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Computer Aided Design’s Impact on the Fashion Industry <ul><li>Many designers sketch by hand but large numbers of designers are now utilizing CAD. </li></ul><ul><li>Today computer Aided design is a part of the qualifications for a fashion designer. </li></ul><ul><li>It has also had an impact on the way designers conduct business. </li></ul><ul><li>Gives designer more flexibility in the area of color and change on a product. </li></ul>

  11. 11. Computer Aided Design Today <ul><li>Today it is used in fashion, AEC Architecture Engineering and Construction, Automotive, Aerospace, Consumer Goods, Machinery, Ship Building. </li></ul><ul><li>Used to help make clothing lines. </li></ul><ul><li>Today there are many CAD software programs. (2d and 3d). </li></ul><ul><li>2d is auto cad </li></ul><ul><li>3d solid works </li></ul>
