The link between the Sketch and Tools of Modeled NURBS: the Representation of Surfaces of Double Curvature in Industrial Design



This poster shows a methodological approach developed at the School ofIndustrial Design (Universidad de Los Andes, Venezuela) in order to achievethree objectives. Firstly, to assist future industrial designers to analyze and guide their ideas during the early stages of the design process with a sort of graphics, whose expressive precision is different to the metric one. Secondly, to help students to improve their graphic skills in order to communicate their ideas to others during the form creation phases of thedesign process. Thirdly, to promote the use of drawing as a way to define a link between hand drawing and modeling in CAD’s NURBS*. These aspects are especially relevant if we consider that such methodological links, although are frequently assumed by some design firms, they have been hardly visualized in the academic environment as part of the “teaching- learning” process
