FSD 317 - Computer-Aided Design I

Credits 3
This course, the first in a three-part series, focuses on an introduction to the Gerber Garment Technology work station. Practical uses of the AccuMark Silhouette and Pattern Design System (PDS) will be employed including the digital input of slopers and patterns. In addition, pattern-drafting techniques previously covered in Flat Pattern Drafting I and II will be translated to computer manipulation. Students are required to demonstrate their newly acquired pattern technology skills by completing a rub-off. Prerequisite: FSD 203.
