Abstract

In the past few decades, computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) have revolutionized the textile industry by providing immense power in creating unimaginable designs and color combinations. Aside from CAD and CAM, the industry is looking for greater excellence in manufacturing by embracing computer science and information technology and using advanced new concepts and methods like computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM). There are numerous companies exhibiting the latest version of their improved CAD/CAM software for weave designs and dobby and jacquard patterns at ITMA 07. Such companies include NeoGraphics, Booria, EAT GmbH, Wonder Weaves Systems, JD&N, Pointcarré, Premier Evolvics, Schönherr, Textronics Design Systems, PROTECHNA, and ETV srl.
