a friend of mine asked me for any state of art warez for designing home linens etc.
he typically uses AI & PS
but he is looking for some easy productivity utility like plugins etc.
Anybody has an idea of any warez / plugins typically used for his industry?
I know symmetryworks plugin and he is using it.

he also want to find a productivity ware for creating 3D preview of his designs as the products. This is a big question for me to answer for he has already found the autoCAD too demanding :)

any information would be appreciated
