The process of developing mathematical representations of any three-dimensional surface or object.
Modeling tools are a crucial part of our activities; we use 3D modeling in many stages of our process. In the early stages of industrial design we use 3D modeling to determine scale and envelopes; it is a great way to establish a backbone for our conceptualization and problem definition stage. 3D Modeling helps us to create layers and layers of physical requirements that base the framework for our design process. At later stages, the 3D model matures to become a product, respecting the business, environmental, materials and manufacturing requirements, as well as providing an iconic Lucidream form and function.
