Abstract: Computer aided design (CAD) systems are being integrated in digital ink-jet printing for design and color management of the textiles. Integration of CAD system generates digital information that can be subsequently used to produce screens directly by the latest laser technology or by conventional means using the computer production system. The systems help in improving tedious design, manipulation/separation, and coloration tasks. A designer can manipulate colors on a visual display unit (VDU) by software control and also produce an interpretation of the design/coloring on the VDU. The system used for color management and communication should be able to interpret the design, communicate, and predict the correct process, control the automatic dispensing of the colorants, and define the printing technology for the specific substrate. In order to obtain the desired color on the textiles, CAD developers use elementary calibration procedures using thousands of colors. The developers scan the results and corrections are made depending on the difference between obtained color versus desired color. In ink-jet printing, process colors such as, cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (CMYK) are used. It can be concluded that the efficiency of these systems may affect correlation of prints between the real and digital worlds.
