Abstract:This paper describes the research on the possibility of a new designtool. The purpose of this tool is to combine analog and digital designskills to create a hybrid form of design. The part that accounts for the analog designskills consists of an object (in example malleable material, wire etc.) which can be manipulated. These manipulations will be measured and digitally represented by using 3D tracking techniques. The assignment is part of Rawshaping Technology (RST) at the University of Twente. Firstly, the goal of RST will be clarified: improving the speed and freedom of design during the first designstage. Secondly, 3D tracking and modelling techniques will be elucidated as well as the techniques which have been used. The research is conducted by making the tool, of which the design is based on a list of demands and wishes. The demands and whishes on this list are derived from the goals of Rawshaping Technology. To get the tool to function, a lot of contact with the supplier of the equipment was required. While waiting for response some analog models have been made. At the time the equipment was connected, several attempts to digitally represent the analog input have been executed. With the results of these attempts, the knowledge gained on both the hardware and software connection, and the preliminary investigation, a conclusion was drawn concerning the achievment of the goals of Rawshaping Technology. It becomes clear that a large part of the requirements are met, or at least could be met with the prototype. This conclusion leads to several reccomendations for future research.
