Industrial design software helps users create, analyse, visualise and communicate design intent and aesthetics before building a physical prototype. Many of the everyday products we use have been designed through industrial design software, from tablets to headphones to cars.
Types of 3D modelling used in industrial design
Polygonal modelling software is used in industrial design for concept modelling and is useful for quick ideation.
Surface modelling software is used widely across industrial design and lets designers create and adjust freeform 3D surfaces with high precision.
Solid modelling software is used to create 3D models, assemblies and drawings.
With parametric modelling, you can change parameters in the software, altering the shape of the design based on those values.
