 Conventional CAD systems have not yet proven their abilit y to provide support for activities which characterise the early conceptual phase of design. We propose to refer to this set of capabiliti es of the human designer in conventional design as, design prototyping. We define the theoretical limit ations of current CAD systems for supporting design prototyping, and postulate the potential of functionally dedicated, task related, CAD modules in Virtual Realit y as a means to provide a unique… CONTINUE READING
