Importance of CAD and CAM Technology in Textile and Apparel Sector:
We are living in a fashionable era and today’s generation is fully fashionable. They feel comfortable in living with fashionable items.

To survive in today’s competitive market, every fashion designer should keep in mind one thing “today’s design becomes out of fashion tomorrow”.
To solve this problem and to keeping pace with the fast-shifting trends of the market, computer-aided designing (CAD technology) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM technology) are very much important. CAD and CAM technology both saves time, money, and easy to perform jobs by using these. These also help in improving efficiency, proper utilization of resources, and improvement in customer satisfaction services.
In the textile and apparel industry, CAD and CAM technology both have made textile and apparel designing simpler, faster more precise, and enjoyable.
