Ever wonder what the best way is to design complex shapes with computer-aided design (CAD) tools?
CAD provides the ultimate medium for communicating concepts – but complex shape design can be challenging for designers of any skill level. Best practices differ across industries and between companies, so it’s hard to find consensus on rules and guidelines.
Fortunately, some general principles for complex shape design are nearly universal or apply in many cases. Recommendations of any kind should be taken a grain of context: designing automated machinery is different from designing medical equipment.
