My primary goal for the ‘digital design’ element of my investigative process was to create digital versions of my chosen product. I decided to create these forms in ‘Sketchup’ a CAD software whith which I’ve had some familarity.
Overall I am pleased with the work produced. I conducted an in depth critical analysis of each product in my sketchbook but to summarise the limitations of Sketchup and its modeling of curved surfaces made detail on some of my more organic forms difficult to create. To get them all to the same standard would have taken a considerable time investment that just wouldnt have been feasible this late in the design process.
