Product Type modules
Description Most of the existing training materials are outdated, very old fashioned and mostly in form of textbooks. The current module tries to fill this gap proposing one innovative bookbinding design tool. The current text will show how modern CAD approaches could be used in nowadays bookbinding workshops. Via appropriate 3D model of the book and possibilities to change the book elements the bookbinders could experiment and show the clients the book vision and agree on the book design. Also, the online presence of the CAD tool gives unlimited possibilities for distant work and communications concerning the bookbinding design.
