Computer Aided Textile Design (CATD) Lab

Computer Aided Textile Designing is the prime activity of present Textile Industry. CATD is an easy tool to create design and patterns, change designs and patterns, change colour combinations etc.

The CATD Lab is equipped with licensed Paintshop pro version 8 in all the terminals to enable the students to practice figured design creation, design arrangement, design setting (Scanning) etc in respect of Dobby and Jacquard Designs. This design can be simulated to visualize the actual size and colour appearance after weaving. The CATD lab is also provided with licensed version of continental CATD software for designing and graph preparation.


Computer Colour Matching (CCM)

The students are given training in CCM to

  1. To match and formulate a recipe for a given dyed sample of fabric/yarn/fiber.
  2. To assess the difference between the dyed sample and the reference sample to match accordingly.
  3. To evaluate colour strength and colour properties.
  4. To create the database for colour matching and further reference.
