Demo system integrating MIND products and sketching techniques

This result delivers a set of techniques integrated in a prototype currently used to open a new commercial area on Mind’s CAD/CAM portfolio. The integration work between the prototype and components developed by partners was done using a framework that is also a result of the SmartSketches project. Sketching techniques extensively tested during the project extent were aimed at a different user target, currently forgotten by the CAD/CAM industry. We are referring to designers/stylists or anyone without specific computer graphics expertise but, nevertheless, professionals working in the real industrial world with creative tasks. By exposing such user target to those techniques we expect to overcome current common belief that using CAD/CAM packages will in, some way, restrict creativity and artistic conception. The specific feedback of this result with industrial partners will give approach vectors to other industrial markets.
