Surprisingly, like the pipe engineering we do here at Pipesco, a piece of clothing will go through an engineering process too. Once the piece of clothing has been designed, the use of CAD is applied to the latter stages of the product’s development. It is used to see how effective different types of fabric will be or additionally in the process of ‘grading’. A process whereby the design team are able to resize a garment to fit a range of body sizes.

You may have experienced 3D CAD modelling in your every day life without even realising. Have you ever visited a kitchen showroom to map out what your new kitchen might look like? Chances are this process was aided by CAD. By adding the measurements of your existing kitchen, CAD software is able to create a 3D visual of what your new kitchen might look like. As a result, you are able to swap out different units and styles until you arrive at the perfect design. Interior designers will often use this tool too to map out potential designs to show clients.
