A fashion CAD is a two-dimensional technical sketch that illustrates your garment. It needs to show every detail you would be able to see on the physical garment including trims, seams, stitching and construction details. Front and back views (at least) are vital as they show your pattern maker and manufacturers exactly how you want your garment to look and be constructed.
Designers also utilise CAD to easily visualise and manipulate designs, range plans, colour palettes, print variations and more.
A tech pack is a highly detailed product blue print that includes everything the factory needs to know to make your garment.
Before you begin your search for a manufacturer, you need to have your tech packs ready in order to obtain an accurate quotation for bulk production. Once you have a reliable quote, you can alter your design, fabrics, trims, colour ways, prints, sizes and quantities to fit your budget.
Your tech pack then becomes a working document for sampling. This is where you will record every fit adjustment, fabric change and more. If anything goes wrong in bulk production, this paper trail will serve as your product contract.
Each tech pack includes:
• Measurements for your sample size
• BOM (bill of materials) - specific sourcing directions for fabrics, thread, trims etc.
• Construction details
• Reference images
• Colour details
• Printwork details
• Artwork details
• Labelling & swing tag instructions(note: the design of these is not included)
• Packaging instructions
