Spatial Sketch System
Traditional design media (such as sketch and model making) is possessed the abilities of hand-craft expression and intuitive attention behavior for design making. It mediated to direct a key instinctive design-training behavior allows designer express their thought with convenience by hand and eye. In this paper, we purpose Spatial Sketch System which consisted with a spatial I/O interface and a VR environment. Spatial I/O interface completed with two wearable devices of S-gloves and S-glasses for design input and visual display. VR environment brings the capabilities of gesture modeling, provide designer three type of modeling functions of line, surface, and mass in architectural design training. It allows designer can implement their instinctive design-training behavior with CAD tools by spontaneously. We evaluated our system through the comparison with present CAD system, it provides users new design possibilities to create idea directly, and allow designers to operate in complicated design processes in architecture with simplicity.
