    Computer Aided Design (Cad) For Fashion Computer Aided Design (Cad) For Fashion Presentation Transcript

    • Computer Aided Design (CAD) for fashion Design By Roxana Evans
    • How is CAD Used?
      • The use of computers to make design process easier.
      • Specialized CAD can be used for architecture, woven fabrics, and engineering.
      • Allows design to be seen in three dimensions.
      • Designer is able to use computer to develop and test product ideas using less work and less errors.
    • CAD in the Fashion Industry
      • Also called “Computer-Assisted or “Computer-Aided drafting”
      • It is used typically to assist in the design process.
      • CAD allows design to be even more detailed making it easier to ensure that designs are flowing together in a collection.
    • What is it Used for?
      • Lets the fashion designer view different designs, colors, and different patterns on different models.
      • Makes design process more sophisticated and can be used in place of regular designing methods such as drawing.
      • Can be used to see a design, fabric, and color all at once before producing the product.
    • How is it important?
      • More schools are requiring design students to learn how to use it.
      • Used in more programs for design schools and colleges.
      • Makes the design process quicker allowing the designer to make changes to an idea.
    • CAD Program
      • Courses: Mathematics and computer aided software at general level.
      • Courses become more advanced with degree of design such as architecture for example.
      • Can lead to CAD professions. (Computer Aided Engineering and Computer Aided Manufacturing.
    • CAD Program Cont’d
      • Integrates fiber, fabric, pattern making construction techniques with use of computers, and software.
      • 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.
      • A degree in CAD can also lead to a job in the textile industry.
    • CAD in the Design Process
      • Overall CAD saves the designer time during the design process.
      • Allows designers to develop even newer design ideas. Shows the components in every design.
      • Shows prototype and makes it easier for the designer to make a change before producing the new design.
    • Computer Aided Design’s Impact on the Fashion Industry
      • Many designers sketch by hand but large numbers of designers are now utilizing CAD.
      • Today computer Aided design is a part of the qualifications for a fashion designer.
      • It has also had an impact on the way designers conduct business.
      • Gives designer more flexibility in the area of color and change on a product.
    • The Success of CAD
      • Gained popularity.
      • Became very sophisticated (can be used to make and modify a whole fashion line in a shorter amount of time.)
      • Used more often to assist fashion designers and has even expanded and became more intricate.
      • Design students have the option of going into fashion or a computer aided design profession.
    • Computer Aided Design Today
      • Today it is used in fashion, AEC Architecture Engineering and Construction, Automotive, Aerospace, Consumer Goods, Machinery, Ship Building.
      • Used to help make clothing lines.
      • Today there are many CAD software programs. (2d and 3d).
      • 2d is auto cad
      • 3d solid works
