This paper proposes a new approach to collaboratively designing original products and crafted objects in a distributed virtual environment. Special attention is paid to concept formulation and image substantiation in the early design stage. A data management strategy and its implementation method are shown to effectively share and visualize a series of shape-forming and modeling operations performed by experts on a network. A 3D object representation technique is devised to manage frequently… CONTINUE READING
