CAD in Clothing and Textiles: A Collection of Expert Views by Winifred Aldrich

Twelve leading authorities and pathfinders across the whole spectrum of CAD systems - suppliers, users, consultants and educators - set out the facts that designers need to know in order to understand and exploit the advantages that this new technology can offer.
