Establishing CAD/CAM

From Teachers TV, this programme looks at the use of CAD/CAM in textiles. At the time of filming, interest in CAD/CAM was being boosted as the British textile industry staged a revival, fuelled by increasing demand for digitally printed fabrics.

Ann Crawshaw, who has a national role in the teaching of CAD/CAM, passes on valuable tips on engaging students with imaginative lessons, accessing funding and, crucially, persuading members of the senior management team to invest in equipment and software to make effective teaching of the subject possible.

Also in this programme, one of Britain's leading digital printing companies shares its view on the value of CAD/CAM in textiles at GCSE, and how some of the techniques are of direct relevance to the industry and valuable for employers.
