Given to students and members of the textile industry at the Fashion Institute of Technology, the course is composed of 15 modules, each accompanied by a computer workshop, and is taught using a team-teaching(More)
This paper describes a first system<supscrpt>1</supscrpt> for generating programmed systems for computer aided fabric design. Two aspects of the system are explored. First the design strategy which led to the construction of a mechanism to provide for a variety of design tools is explained. The hierarchical structure of the system as well as the nature of(More)
Textile Graphics is a computer-aided technique for developing a textile design and textile machinery patterning mechanism information from an artist's drawing. The computer is operated by a textile designer-technician who understands the particular textile machinery for which he is adapting the original drawing. He inputs the original drawing to the(More)
The traditional method of designing textiles is a procedure of filling-in patterns of squares on graph paper to achieve (1) a representation of the finished fabric as well as (for the major classification of looms) (2) a specification of how to set up the loom and (3) how to control its moving parts. For large designs, the traditional method of painting the(More)
