CAD/CAM Software for Fashion Designers

CAD/CAM is an outstanding software that allows you to design almost anything and everything accurately. When CAD design software were first introduced in the market they created boom but still people thought that CAD could not replace the manual method of designing. Today it has replaced manual methods in almost every field. The time and energy which is saved by using CAD cannot be replaced by other methods.

CAD Software in Fashion Designing:

In fashion designing CAD software allows you to create 3D models with the size and shape you want to create and after you have created the model you can make changes at any moment. You can change the posture, stance, size, background and any other thing. 

You can save it and store it in the library and you can use it whenever you need it. 

You can make changes or modifications in the existing designs and a brand new design will be in front of you.

If you don't want to create model or you don't know how to make one there are virtual libraries available from where you can select model or design and with slight change it will be all new all yours.

The patterns created in CAD are as accurate as possible. Patterns can be reduced in size or increased whenever required. So scaling does not require lengthy operations. You have created one pattern now you can create million of others with the help of it. Again with slight changes.

Colors can be picked up from the color libraries which contain million of colors or else you can create a new color by mixing two or more than two, again the palette has endless range of colors. Change color in the design at any point of designing.

You can upgrade your software every on and off and as new features appear on the internet you can download them. In other way you can improve your library by downloading new templates and design ideas online.
