Many designers do not use CAD tools for shape ideation. They consider CAD systems not appropriate for the ideation phase. This research investigates how designers ideate shape, in particular which terms...

Shape communication was observed in an experiment. Fourteen subject pairs explained the shape of ten objects to each other. All subjects applied shape metaphors, in particular for the five clay objects...

CAD is used for the design of nearly any product, but not often in the earliest phases of design. Physical modeling is still very popular for ideation. What makes physical modeling different ? A method...

For successfully supporting shape ideation, the support software should match the way the designer thinks about shape and shape modification. Thoughts of designers cannot directly be observed. Therefore...

This paper presents a case study on design interaction and processing incorporating triple tool modalities. The methodology and processes applied are directly related to our research and exploration of...

The introduction of CAD in design and education created simultaneously a user-experience void along with a user-interaction gap. Consequently this often leads to frustration, time loss, problem reduction,...
