2D perspective sketching is an essential tool for designers during the early stage of design. However, for products that have moving parts and take different poses during usage, 2D perspective sketching can be painstaking and time-consuming. In this interactive showcase, we present a 3D sketching system for multi-pose products. Our system lets designers easily sketch 3D curves, and part, rig, and pose them. We showcase that, with interactions that closely resemble traditional 2D perspective sketching and the physical manipulation of an articulated object, designers can quickly try many different form and movement ideas in 3D during the early stage of design.
