Article
In new product development courses, engineering students are introduced to the tools for addressing the functional or technical issues of the product. Problems arise when they need to empathise with the user to better understand how the product can be used in different contexts. To address this problem, we propose the use of storyboards as a tool t...
Article
In product development, decisions about the appearance of the product are risky and difficult to make. Engineers and designers are aware that adding new design features or form design elements can degrade the visual appearance. Therefore, it is important to understand how future users perceive different design configurations. In this paper, an adap...

The study aims to explore the usefulness of existing VR 3D modelling tools for use in mechanical engineering. Previous studies have investigated the use of VR 3D modelling tools in conceptual phases of the product development process. Our objective was to find out if VR tools are useful in creating advanced freeform CAD models that are part of the...

Measurements of technical objects can be done with contact and non-contact approaches. Contact methods are accurate but slow. On the other hand, non-contact methods deliver rapid point acquisition and are increasingly being used as their precision mounts. However, multiple scanning parameters such as the incident angle, object colour and scanning d...

Nowadays, a large number of different tools that support early phases of design are available to engineers. In the past decade a specialized set of CAD-based tools were developed, that support the ideation process by generating different design alternatives according to the criteria given by the designer. Two types of tools are discussed in this pa...
Article
Numerous research results support the finding that a product's visual appearance is important. In particular, end products or services that have a direct product-user interaction have to be developed in accordance with the taste of the user and the market. The user-centered product should be designed and created according to both the technical requ...
