This paper presents the identification of patterns of difficulty that design students face at the moment of applying algorithmic thinking and parametric modeling from the generation of the idea, to the final model. The results have been based on surveys, observations, and evaluations by parametric design students during one year. A new way of algorithmic thinking is being proposed in order to find a correspondence between the original concept and the resulting form in design projects.
