CEID 260: 3D Design Sketching

Sketching is an essential process in three-dimensional design; it documents the flow of ideas and can be used as an effective tool for communication. In this course, you will explore pencil-sketching techniques commonly used in industrial design, interior design, furniture design, and architectural design. Through slides, lectures, demonstrations, discussion, and design projects, you will apply design drawing techniques to the visualization of products and environment, form, and space.
