On the morning of September 19, participants will have the opportunity to visit Cotton Incorporated for a tour of its design and textile processing areas.

At this location, tour participants will see a selection of CAD/CAM technology for textile design and product development as well as dyeing and finishing technology.

Digital textile printing will be a featured technology within the wet processing area. The tour will then proceed to [TC]2, where visitors will gain insight into 3D technologies for product development and the integration of digital printing into the sewn product manufacturing environment.

3D body scanning and apparel related CAD technologies will be featured along with digital systems for printing, cutting, and color communication.

The tour is free and transportation will be provided; however, space is limited. You must register by September 3 to participate!
